S'Mores Mini Pies



I know
  S'mores everything 
is the craze right now and I am more
than willing to jump on the bandwagon!  

These luscious little pies are a fabulous dessert and I have
to admit that I like them a lot better than a real S'more!

The crust is a cookie type crust
and it really makes a delicious pie crust.  
My daughter saw this on Shelly's blog Cookies and Cups
and made a full pie like darling Shelly did. 

 I decided to try her recipe
out in mini jars because I am just smitten by 
small individual desserts. I have to admit that it was a lot easier 
to devour
 in the mini form because we didn't have to cut it into pieces, 
but that might have been because we couldn't wait to let it cool
when we had it in the whole pie form!!!
 Either way, it is a delicious pie and Shelly's is beautiful 
as a full pie.  Check it out on her blog.

I am sure you could make it into a bar cookie too.


The secret ingredient in the crust is crushed graham crackers.  
Cookies and Cups says she adapted it from Hershey's S'mores Blondie Pie.


The cookie crust is topped with ooey gooey marshmallow
cream and then a generous amount of Hershey's Milk
Chocolate Bars.


One of my favorite S'mores adaptations is a S'more with
peanut butter cups, so I tried some with mini peanut 
butter cups too.  We have experimented with all kinds
of candy bars in our S'mores and you could too.


Then a final layer of the crust is added.
Pop them in the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes or until the
cookie crust looks dry.


I decided to garnish mine with some cute ribbon I got
at Sur Le Table - wish I got kisses every time I cooked!


S'Mores Mini Pies

3/4 C. white sugar
1/2 C. soft butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 C. crushed graham cracker crumbs
1- 7 oz jar marshmallow cream
6 regular sized Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars
or other candy bars, broken into pieces

In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar and butter together
until well blended, then add the egg and vanilla.  Mix in the
flour and baking powder and graham cracker crumbs.

Spray the bottom of your jars or 9 inch pie pan
with Pam.  Spread half the dough in the bottom of the 6 jars or
the pie pan.  Spoon the marshmallow cream in and then top with
the candy bar.  In the jars, I just used a dollop of the marshmallow
cream to cover the crust and then used only half a candy bar
per jar (which ends up only using 3 candy bars).  Top the
jars with another layer of crust by patting it into a circle in
your hands big enough to cover the filling.

Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes for the jars and20-25
 for a large pie or until the dough looks just dry.  Remember
it is like a cookie crust so it will continue to cook after
it comes out of the oven.

Let cool if possible - but if not - then enjoy right away
but don't let the hot marshmallow burn your little tongue!

Be Warned
The marshmallow might grow and lift your top right off
your mini pies - just push the crust back down while it is
still hot!



Nope, I didn't let it cool!

Your little pies are the cutest! I love the idea of a "pie in a jar".
Was going through a few of your posts that I have missed...had a good chuckle about your son's sacrement speech!
True inspiration your blog is....and congrats on the new little arrival in your family.
