S’mores Cookies

I was such a princess when I was young. Who am I kidding? I am still a princess and these s’mores fit the princess in me. Sure, we can grab our graham crackers and Hershey bars and fake marshmallows and toss them into the microwave – but these, were meant for a princess. They are so pretty.

Bring out two sheets of baking parchment. Place the dough between them and roll out until quite thin. (If you want your cookies to be very thin – divide the dough in two and roll out each of them between two sheets of baking parchment.)

Chill for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator, still between the sheets of baking parchment.

Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator and use a cookie cutter to cut out the cookies.
