Ingredients

  • 1 Cup butter, such as Country Crock® Spreadable Sticks or Tub
  • 3/4 Cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 Cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 Teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 bars (1.55 ounce) milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1 Cup mini marshmallows

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix Country Crock® Spread, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, egg, egg yolk and vanilla in large bowl until well mixed. Stir in remaining ingredients except milk chocolate and mini marshmallows until blended. (Dough will be soft and creamy.) Stir in half of the chopped milk chocolate until every spoonful of dough has some of the chocolate.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets 3-inches apart.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Immediately top cookies with remaining chocolate and marshmallows. Return to oven and bake just until chocolate starts to melt and marshmallows begin to soften, about 30 seconds.

Cool 1 minute on wire rack; remove from sheets and cool completely.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
