I have a weird relationship with s’mores.
I love the idea of them. How could I not?
I like the crisp crunch of graham crackers.
Melted chocolate? Love some, thanks!
Ooey gooey marshmallow? Absolutely!
But the three come together and I am just…sorta…kinda…underwhelmed maybe?
I think, for me at least, the three good things come together and cancel each other out.
Shocking, I know. And my camping enthusiast friends are probably second guessing their relationship with a crazy person but there you have it.
The truly funny thing is that I am fascinated by them. And apparently a lot of people are because if you type in “s’more” on Pinterest a lot of pins come up. And I mean a lot. And also a lot of categories…in a jar, gourmet, treat, camping, buffet, kit and, I kid you not, one labeled healthy.
Since Rob and I are the only ones to have this weird indifference to s’mores I decided to give this s’more pie a try one Sunday for our fellowship meal. The pie plate came home empty so I guess it was a success.
The only complaint I have is that it didn’t cut into nice slices…we ended up doing more of a scooping thing. This could totally be my fault though so who knows? If you try it let me know how your’s slices up.
What you’ll need:
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup Graham Cracker crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
7 oz marshmallow cream
2 Hershey bars, unwrapped and separated*
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/4 cup chocolate chips
*The original recipe calls for way more candy bars than I needed…a tragic event that left me with a surplus of chocolate to
hide share with the kids another day 😉
What you’ll do:
In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar together.
Add in the egg and vanilla.
Stir in the flour, graham cracker crumbs, and baking powder.
Divide the dough in half, pressing one half of the dough along the bottom and sides of a lightly greased 9 inch pie plate.
Spread the marshmallow cream evenly on the bottom crust.
Place the separated chocolate squares on top of the marshmallow cream.
Sprinkle the marshmallows on next.
Pat sections of the remaining dough on top of and all around the marshmallows.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until a nice golden brown.
Allow to cool completely before cutting.
