  • Step 7 – Bake the delicious cookie dough – Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes until the cookies are slightly golden brown around the edges (note: they may look slightly raw in the center).  
  • Step 8 – Let Cookies Rest – Allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes.  Then move them to wire racks to cool completely. 
  • Step 9 – Serve and Enjoy – Then the delicious cookies are ready to serve and enjoy. 

Recipe Tips

  • Cookie Scoop – We recommend using a cookie scoop to place the cookie dough on the baking sheet. This keeps the cookies about the same size so they cook about the same time.
  • Baking Sheet – Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. This makes it easy to remove the cookie and for easy clean up.
  • Mixing the Ingredients – Make sure not to overmix the ingredients. This can create a tough texture cookie. Mix the ingredients until combined.
  • Chill Dough – After combining ingredients, allow the dough to chill for about 30 minutes but for no longer. If you allow the dough to chill for long periods the dough starts to break down.
  • Marshmallow – Reserve some marshmallows to top the cookie with as soon as the come out of the oven.
  • Baking Cookies – We recommend to not over baking the cookies. We bake the cookies until they have golden edges then remove from oven. They will finish baking while on the baking sheet.

How long to Bake

These cookies do not take long to bake. After placing them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place in the oven. Bake the cookies for about 8 minutes or until the edges are a golden brown. Remove from the oven and place on cooling rack.

If the cookies are still soft in the center, they will finish cooking while on the cookie sheet.

Cooking time will vary based on your oven.
