Nutella S’more Cookies

I am officially a soccer mom.

Well, except for the fact that we’re playing t-ball, not soccer.

And the fact that I don’t drive a mini-van, nor do I have any intention of doing so.

But I am sitting at a dirty, dusty baseball field and cheering on my kid like he’s Babe Ruth.

Which he’s not, by the way.

He cried when he got tagged during practice this week.

For the record, he is only four, and it was only his second t-ball practice ever.

After an initial wave of disappointment washed over me for him, I had to giggle about it a little bit.  I mean, we need to learn early in life that we won’t always win, and that it’s okay.

Character-building, even.

But sometimes character-building also requires cookies.

Don’tcha think?

Nutella S’more Cookies

adapted from EveryDay Food, July/August 2009

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • Nutella
  • 15 large marshmallows, halved (I used caramel-vanilla swirl)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a food processor, pulse oats until finely ground. Add flours, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; pulse to combine.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, scraping down sides of bowl.
  4. On low speed, add in flour mixture until just combined.
  5. Drop dough by tablespoons on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until lightly brown, about 12 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, and add a small amount of Nutella on the top of each cookie and top with a marshmallow. Broil until marshmallows are browned, about 2 minutes.
