Star S'mores

Not only are these s'mores patriotic, they are customizable. We like having a mix of chocolate bars on hand so guests have a choice. In addition to Norway's Freia milk chocolate, you could also try Ghirardelli dark chocolate with caramel, Ritter Sport praline, and Perugina cappuccino.

Ingredients

For the Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey

For the S'mores

  • 8 ounces chocolate, broken into small pieces
  • 16 clean twigs or wooden skewers (preferably soaked in water 30 minutes)
  • 32 marshmallows

Directions

  1. Make the cookies: Whisk together flours, wheat germ, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.

  2. Beat together butter, sugar, and honey with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture; beat until combined.

  3. Turn out dough onto a floured surface, and divide in half. Roll out each dough half to 1/8-inch thickness, and refrigerate until firm, about 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut out squares with a 3-inch fluted square cutter. Cut a star out of the center of half the cookies using a 1 1/2-inch star cutter. Reroll scraps once, and repeat.

  4. Place squares 1 inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets, keeping cookies with cutouts together. Refrigerate until very firm, about 15 minutes.

  5. Bake cookies until dark brown, 14 to 16 minutes, rotating halfway through (star cookies take about 1 minute less). Let cool on sheets 10 minutes. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container up to 2 days.

  6. Assemble the s'mores: Preheat grill on high (if using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 2 seconds) or build a campfire. Divide chocolate among cookies without cutouts. Skewer marshmallows; toast over grill or fire, rotating, until gooey in center and nicely charred, about 2 minutes. Remove marshmallows from skewers; place 2 on each chocolate-topped cookie. Sandwich each with a cutout star cookie; press gently. Let sit 2 minutes to melt chocolate.

    @Disball Is it really that hard to do a search:

    My issue with this recipe is that it never came together. I turned it out and it just crumbled. When I tried to roll it, it cracked and crumbled so much there's no way I could get a cookie cutter through it. I followed the recipe exactly, but I think the proportion of flour is just too high. I might try adding some water or an egg to see if I can get it to bind and save it.

    S'mores is all about a great marshmallow, not the graham cracker. Disappointed this recipe didn't include homemade marshmallows.
