Please Sir, May I Have S’more?

Two days ago, I made homemade graham crackers. They were certainly more crackerish than the last recipe that I had used. Today, I wanted to made an easy and fun twist on s’mores. I looked around on the internet and found a few recipes for a s’more pie. I decided to use these recipes as a starting point for my dessert and off I went. I used my graham crackers and some chocolate animal crackers for a base crust. Then, in the last first minutes of baking, I added some marshmallow and let them melt over it. As the crust was cooling, I made a homemade chocolate pudding and poured it over the base. And voila, S’mores Pudding. This was my first time making a pudding from scratch and it turned out pretty well. There were no clumps or lumps and the flavor was pleasing, so I would say it was a success. Tomorrow, I am having a real s’mores roast, sans chocolate,for me.

S’mores Pudding

1 cup crushed graham crackers(crushed chocolate animal crackers mixed in are optional, add to your liking)

1 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons butter, melted

2 jumbo marshmallows or about 30 minis

1 recipe chocolate pudding

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter in a bowl then press into the bottom of a 9x5x3 loaf pan. Bake for 5 minutes. While the base is baking, tear the jumbo marshmallow into bits slightly smaller than your thumb(if using minis, leave untorn). After 5 minutes take the crust out and sprinkle the marshmallow evenly over the top, bake for 5 more minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool. While the base is cooling, make the chocolate pudding and then pour over the base. refrigerate until set.  

Chocolate Pudding from Betty Crocker

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons corn starch

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup cocoa powder

2 cups milk

2 egg yolks, slightly beaten

2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt and cocoa powder in 2-quart saucepan. Stir in milk gradually. cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir some of the mixture into the eggs, then blend into the mixture in the saucepan. Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour into dishes. Cool slightly and refrigerate.

Graham Crackers from King Arthur

2 cups (8¼ ounces) whole-wheat flour
¼ cup (1¾ ounces) sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 large egg
¼ cup (1¾ ounces) vegetable oil
¼ cup (3 ounces) honey
2 to 3 tablespoons (1 to 1½ ounces) milk (approx.)
additional milk for glaze
cinnamon-sugar (optional)

1. In a mixing bowl, combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking powder. In a separate bowl, beat egg till light, then add oil, honey and 2 tablespoons milk. Stir into dry ingredients until you have a fairly stiff dough, adding additional milk if necessary. Wrap dough in waxed paper and chill until firm, about 1 hour (or longer, if it’s more convenient).

2. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead gently until it holds together. Roll dough out till it’s about 1/16-inch thick; make sure rolling surface is well-floured, or you’ll have trouble transferring crackers to baking sheet. Preheat your oven to 375°F.

3. Cut dough into 3-inch squares, prick each square several times with a fork, and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Brush the tops with milk, sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar if you’re so inclined, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until crackers are lightly browned. Remove crackers from oven, transfer to a wire cooling rack, and cool completely.

Cookies:Chocolate-Oatmeal Chewies

I made cookies tonight and the lucky recipe was chocolate-oatmeal chewies. They are supposedly very good, but I would not know as I sadly do not enjoy chocolate. As I had to get ready for school, my mother got the last batch out of the oven and was freaked out. I forgot to tell her that I put some of the marshmallow scraps in; they had turned the cookies black(Halloween marshmallows) and oozed all over. They looked like someone had doused them in lighter fluid and then light a match. They still tasted good despite their roadkill apperearance. I will try to get pictures on later.The recipe is from the Betty Crocker Cookie Book.

Chocolate-Oatmeal Chewies

Makes App. 4 Dozen Cookies

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup milk

1 egg

2 2/3 cup quick cooking or old-fashioned oats

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup baking cocoa

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Heat oven to 350F. Beat sugar, butter, milk and egg in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed or a spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Drop by rounded teaspoonful about 2 s apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12(more like 13 or 14 for me, but it could be my oven) or until no indentation remains when touched in center. Cool 1-2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Enjoy!

Hello All!

Well, this is my first post and I really don’t know what to say. In a few minutes I am going to make some cookies and will let you know how those turn out later. But, first, I will share one piece of cooking information:homemade marshmallows are the most AMAZING thing in the world. Yesterday I made some and was cutting them out today. The scraps did not last long. 🙂 Marshmallows are super easy, the only thing to remember is let the alloted time pass or else they will fail and you will be mad.
When I post the cookies, I will try to post some marshmallow pics too. Toodles!
