S'mores Cookies: The Perfect Summer Cookie

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Ours was lazy, which was just what I needed to recover from a stressful last week. We watched a lot of Lost. A. Lot. Of. It. We're on season two now... it is so good! Have you seen it? Don't tell me anything! :)

I made these cookies this weekend for a little get together with friends and they were a hit! Pinterest came through again. It always does. It's not like I'm surprised. These cookies were really really really good. Like, win the lottery good. Like, give away your first born good. Well let's not go that far, but they are deeeee-licious. 

I got the original recipe from Kevin & Amanda and I only did two things differently: I used regular graham crackers instead of cinnamon and regular mini mallows instead of the mallow bites. Otherwise, this is some of the best cookie dough I've had. Seriously yummy. These might become our favorite "summer" cookie this year. They have the same flavor of s'mores with a lot less of the messiness!
