i love marshmallows in cookies!

Is there any reason not to just use butter instead of shortening? (I'm pretty experienced with using my oven for cooking all kinds of animals, but I have very little experience when it comes to cooking sweet things.)

The only reason that I used shortening was because it was an old recipe. You can use butter, any form of shortening (animal or vegetable), and lard. I just followed my babcia's recipe.

(Not that it matters, but it seems that my previous parenthetical statement was unclear. I just meant that I've cooked a lot of meat in my oven but very few sweet things.)

Anyway, thanks for the clarification.

10/10 ! I try to do this recipe the next week xD
I made something like this years ago, but did not think to freeze the marshmallows. All I had were multi-colored minis, so the resulting cookies were brown lumps with rainbow ooze leaking out of the cracks. They were still tasty and the recipe was re-named Horta Cookies. Yours are much more photogenic.

Thank you! Freezing the marshmallows really is key to making them gooey in the middle.

How do you get it to have that gooey middle. When I made them there was just a space where the marshmallow was.
Strangedichotomy (author)  ravenhaker3 years ago
Make sure that you make the space large enough in the beginning of making the dough ball and that the mixture has enough dough on all side inclosing it. Plus, make sure you freeze the marshmallows while making the dough. It helps it from getting too hot and breaking out of the cookie during baking.

These look absolutely delicious! I can't wait to try them out! Is there a possible way to burn the marshmallow filling? I would love to avoid any possible mistakes! Awesome!

Just make sure that you put them in the freezer while you are making the dough. This helps make them not as sticky to the touch and helps get them gooey on the inside without them popping open and burning.

Hope you enjoy them, and let me know how they turned out for you.

Question - is it 1 cup or 2 cups of flour? Cuz the ingredients list says 2 cups but the instructions just say 1 cup.
Strangedichotomy (author)  KnitChick3 years ago
2 cups, thanks for pointing that out to me in the instructions. I've corrected it.

What about making these ahead of time? And would these work with, say, homemade marshmallows?

Also, the local supermarket sells these marshmallows, where some are vanilla and the rest are strawberry.
Strangedichotomy (author)  Jareth2473 years ago
Yes, you can make them ahead of time and freeze them.

As for the marshmallows, you can use home or store bought, the important thing is that you freeze them before putting them in the cookie. If they aren't frozen the center can burst and goo all over the cookie.

Sure, using flavored marshmallows is a great way to spice it up!

They look yummy!

BTW - Nice mixer. I was hoping to win the KitchenAid with my entry, but I doubt it now, there are sooo many good entries. You might get the first prize. I'm giving you my vote (can't vote for myself, lol)
Strangedichotomy (author)  canucksgirl3 years ago
Thanks canucksgirl,

I really do like my mixer and feel like I'm cheating on him for the KitchenAid, hence why I am gunning for the iPad.

Thanks so much for the AWESOME recommendation! I know that there are lots of entries, just power through! I'm going to add more cookies from my family and friends, you should do the same!

Loved your cookies! I <3 peanut and raisins!
