Caramel Marshmallow Cookies
A brown butter and brown sugar cookie stuffed with marshmallows and Rolo candy.
Servings: 2 dozen
- 14 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 cups flour
- Rolo minis
- miniature marshmallows
- 2 tablespoons each sugar and brown sugar for rolling
Place 10 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until butter turns brown.
Cut remaining 4 tablespoons of butter into chunks and place in the mixing bowl. Pour hot brown butter over the top, and let sit a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Once all the butter is melted, add brown sugar and mix well.
Add egg and yolk, and vanilla, and mix well. Add salt, baking powder, and flour, and mix until combined.
In a small dish, combine sugar and brown sugar for rolling. Take a large piece of dough and flatten the center. Press two mini marshmallows and one mini Rolo in the center, and wrap dough around and seal tightly. (It should make a large 2-inch cookie.) Roll cookie in sugar mixture and place on a lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350F for 14-16 minutes. Let cool for 1-2 minutes on the pan before transferring to a cooling rack.
