Remember how I've been saying constantly "I want this summer to last forever????".....well, I kinda cheated on my massive love for a never-ending summer by DRINKING MY FIRST PSL. What on earth is a PSL, you ask. Let me help you out...Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Fall in a cup.
I wasn't planning on having one this early but Starbucks (those marketing geniuses!!) had this online scavenger hunt thing where if you solved the puzzle, you'd get the code to unlock the PSL at your nearest Starbucks. I got the code last night so of course I had to get one. I ventured to a store on my walk to work and guess what? I was the first to unlock the code...it was pretty awesome and I documented it on insta (obvs)!! And on a crazier note (don't worry I'll get to the cookies soon...) I had a dream two nights ago that I ordered a "PSL" (yes I actually said PSL in my dream) and the barista gave me one even though the drink hadn't officially launched yet. So of course I had to fulfill that prophecy.
But anyways on to cookies......!
I made these cookies because I didn't want summer to end.
When I imagine the perfect summer, s'mores are definitely in the picture.
Oooey, gooey, chocolatey goodness squished between two graham crackers. mmmhmmm, how can you beat that?
But you can. Because And someone had the genius idea to take s'more and throw them into a cookie...BRILLIANT. I did not come up with this concept. I merely followed a recipe (by Baked by Rachel). She uses a mix of cake flour and bread flour.
The next time I bake these, I think I will try regular flour, little chunks of graham crackers (instead of crumbs) and browning the butter because you can't go wrong with browned butter...ever. But they were incredibly delicious and we devoured them on our Parksville Girls' Weekend.
So go, bake these cookies and tell me what you think!
And enjoy these last few weeks of summer!
