Day 30: Sweetie Pies

We went to 3 places again today. They were all really good contacts. The first place we saw the lady outside so we to her. All the places we went to today have been in the neighborhood for a long time. She lived there with her husband and 10 yr. old daughter and she's 9 wks pregnant also. The next couple was an older man and woman and they told us we should go to their neighbors, so we did. One of the lady's there has diabetes and wouldn't be able to eat the cookies but the other lady could (and said they were good) and her granddaughter was there visiting today. We also went around to (almost all the houses) that we've visited and just left reminders for today on the door. A lot of people have told us they have plans already but some said they would come.
This recipe one of my best friends, Jessica, sent me. A lady made these for Sunday school at church and she said they were really good. And they were good. They tasted just like brownies. I think these would also be good with nuts in them, if you like nuts in your cookies, or brownies. I would also suggest just mixing the marshmallows and chocolate chips into the dough rather than doing them individually. I'm sure it would yield the same results but without all the extra work.
Sweetie Pies

3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup white sugar
1cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup salted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups miniature marshmallows

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa and baking soda. Set aside. Combine sugars in a large bowl. Blend in butter. Add eggs and vanilla, and whip till light and fluffy. Add the flour mixture and blend until well combined. Batter will be stiff.
Take a heaping tablespoonful of dough, and flatten it out in your palm. Place 4 marshmallows and 3 chocolate chips in the center and wrap the dough around them, completely encasing them and forming a 2-inch diameter dough ball.
Place balls on ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes. Cool on pan 2 minutes, then transfer to a cool, flat surface-like the counter. A rack is not good for these cookies, as it causes them to break apart. They are very soft till they are well cooled. This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies.
