S'mores cookies are the perfect way to celebrate the height of summer while indoors in an air-conditioned house.
Or, at a summer lake cottage, which is how this slightly messy but perfectly summer s'mores dessert came to be.
Tuesday afternoon it was 95 degrees in the shade - not exactly campfire fire weather at the cottage but that never stops us from eating campfire food, especially S'mores.
We've made them in the microwave, under the broiler, and now with this great recipe from Cuisine at home magazine, we put some s'more cookies together on a cookie sheet.
