Day 14: S'mores Cookie Bars

It's already been 2 weeks! It's gone pretty fast so far. So today we met the Gallagher's. Well, the husband atleast. I guess his wife isn't feeling too good today. They work with the animal rescue place and have a bunch of cats. If there's a litter of kittens dropped off in a box they'll take them in and foster them, so they're pretty busy with that. Especially now that it's kitten season! He has pretty much the same philosphy as us on health, moderation. His brother lives next door to them so we'll probably give him a visit tomorrow. I've made today's 'cookie' a few times before. It's one of my favorites. So if you haven't had them you should go make them, right now.
*Be sure to let them cool or even freeze them for a little while before you cut into them, as hard as it is to wait. The marshmallow cream oozes out and it gets kind of messy if they're still warm.
S'mores Cookie Bars
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs*
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla.In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined. Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan.Place chocolate bars over dough. 2 king-sized Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick.Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff.Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (most easily achieved by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together).Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned.Cool completely before cutting into bars
Makes 16 cookie bars.
*Note: 3/4 cup crumbs is approx 7 full-sized graham cracker sheets
