Graham Cracker S’mores Cookies are absolutely amazing. There is a little bit of flour in them, but the majority of the flour is swapped out with graham cracker crumbs. Something else that is a little bit unique about these cookies is that you use a can of sweetened condensed milk in the recipe. Because of the sweetened condensed milk, you don’t need any eggs or vanilla and the cookies end up being incredibly soft.

How to make The BEST ham Cracker S’mores cookies:

After trying out many cookie recipes over many years, I have picked up several important tips for making the perfect cookies every time!

  • Make sure that you have enough flour in the dough. If the dough is too sticky, you may need to add a little bit of flour. Because of the sweetened condensed milk in the recipe, this dough is a little bit stickier than many other cookie recipes so don’t worry!
  • Preheat the oven. This will help your cookies turn out right every time!
  • Use a cookie scoop! If you want all your cookies to be perfectly shaped and have them all be the same size, a cookie scoop is the way to go.
  • Use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Doing this will make it really easy to remove the cookies from your cookie sheet so that you don’t have to scrape them off the pan – they will just slide right off in perfect shape!
  • Don’t over bake the cookies – when I take mine out of the oven, they still look slightly under baked but they will continue to bake on the cookie sheet for a couple more minutes so that’s ok!
  • You may be tempted to add more marshmallows to the s’mores cookies – I was! I have found that adding more marshmallows causes the cookies to spread out a little bit too much, so just stick to the one cup. If you start adding too many more, you will end up with one largish cookie on your cookie sheet! Not that I know this from experience or anything….

How do you soften butter to room temperature?

The best way to soften butter is to set it out for a few hours before you make your cookies. Since most of us (or maybe just me!) aren’t that prepared or don’t think that far in advance, there are a few tricks to softening butter perfectly in just a matter of minutes.

My favorite way to soften butter is in the microwave. It’s definitely fast, but you do have to be very careful not to melt it. Just put the whole stick of butter in the microwave (as long as it isn’t wrapped in foil!) and microwave for about 6-7 seconds. If the butter is still really cold, try another 5-7 seconds and check it again. You may need a few intervals, and if the butter is starting to feel soft, you can shorten the final interval to just a few seconds to make sure it doesn’t start melting.

I actually prefer to use the defrost setting on my microwave – I don’t know exactly what that mode does differently, and it takes a little bit longer (closer to 30 seconds), but it seems to be easier to get the butter to soften without melting.

How many graham crackers to make 1 1/2 cups of crumbs?

You will need about 10 graham crackers to yield the 1 1/2 cups of crumbs needed for the recipe. There are a few different ways to make graham cracker crumbs.

-Put the graham crackers in a blender. It helps to break them up a little bit before placing them in the blender.

-Place the graham crackers in a ziplock bag and seal the bag, making sure to let the extra air out before sealing. Use a rolling pin to crush all of the graham crackers into finely crushed crumbs.

-You can cheat like I often do and just buy pre-crushed graham cracker crumbs! They come in a box and can be found in the baking aisle, next to the pre-made graham cracker pie crusts.

Making these S’mores Cookies made me start thinking about warmer days and summer. Here is a picture from a couple of summers ago up here in the Pacific NW where summer doesn’t actually start until closer to July! There is this little surrey rental shop about 20 minutes from our house and the kids absolutely love to “drive” along the water. It gets easier every year as more of our kids have legs long enough to help us pedal!
