Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cookies

Nicole Cogan NOBREAD Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cookies

Marshmallows were one of my favorite foods growing up, but when I was diagnosed with all of my food intolerances I gave them up! Why? Well, do we really know what is in a marshmallow? And given I had SO many intolerances, I gave up every food that contained more than one or two ingredients. Nowadays, as I’ve learned how to handle my intolerances a bit more, and marshmallows have become more allergy friendly, I’m happy to say they are back in my life.

Today I decided to change up my recipes a bit… AKA forego chocolate from the recipe, and I made these peanut butter marshmallow cookies! These cookies are simple to make, big in size, and will totally warm your heart this holiday season.

  • Create 12 balls out of the dough, and then flatten each ball into a circular cookie shape.
  • Top 6 of these cookies with marshmallows.
  • Take the 6 cookies that are NOT topped with marshmallows, and place them on top of the marshmallow cookies. Press the two cookies together so the marshmallows are stuffed inside.

  • Place cookies on parchment paper and put the tray into the oven. Cook for ~10 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookies are a light golden brown. Cook at 375 F.
