Peanut butter & bourbon s'mores sandwich cookies recipe
Yields about 12 sandwich cookies
For the cookies
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons bourbon
2 tablespoons honey
2-1/2 cups flour
1-1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
Dash of salt
For the s'mores
12 personal size bars of Hershey's chocolate
About 12 marshmallows, cut into thirds
About 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 - 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Cream the butter, peanut butter, sugars, eggs, bourbon and vanilla together.
In another bowl, whisk the baking soda, salt and flour together. Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture and stir to combine. Cover the mixture with foil and chill for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Scoop 1 tablespoon of peanut butter cookie mix onto the sheet and repeat, leaving a 1-inch space between each. Using a fork, gently press down once and then again going the opposite way (to make a tic-tac-toe board-like shape on the top).
Bake for about 12 minutes, or until golden. Let cool for about 90 seconds on a wire cooling rack.
Mix the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together. Spread about 1 tablespoon of crumbs over the bottom of one cookie. Cut each marshmallow into thirds and place on top of the graham cracker crumbs.
Using a kitchen torch, slightly torch each marshmallow to melt it a little and give it a charred look.
Top the marshmallows with one small Hershey's bar (chopped in two to make it fit). Torch the candy for a second to melt a little and then place another cookie on top.
