Adult Supervision Required

Utensils Needed:

Baking sheet

Mixing bowl

Large spoon

Parchment paper (optional)

Electric mixer

2-inch round cookie cutter

Wire rack

Measuring cups
and spoons

Rolling pin

Knife or
kitchen scissors

Ingredients:

3 cups
all-purpose
flour, plus extra for rolling

½ cup sugar

¾ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter,
room temperature,
plus extra to grease
the baking sheet

3 large eggs

Bag of large marshmallows

¾ cup sprinkles

¼ teaspoon salt

Let’s Get Started!

1   Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with
     butter, or line the sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.

2   In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking
     soda, cinnamon, and salt with an electric mixer on medium
     setting for 2 to 3 minutes.

3   Add the butter and the eggs to the dry ingredients and mix
     with the electric mixer or by hand until sandy.

4   Sprinkle flour on a work surface, then roll the dough out into
     a rectangular shape about 9 x 13 inches and 1/8 inch thick.
     Use the cookie cutter to cut out rounds out of the dough. After
     you have cut out the first batch, roll the left over dough into a
     ball and roll out again and continue to cut out cookies until all
     the dough is used. Place the cookies on the baking sheet about
     2 to 3 inches apart. If you do not have a cookie cutter, you can
     make rounds using the mouth of a small glass.

5   Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Let cool on the
     baking sheet for a few minutes, and then transfer cookies to a
     wire rack to cool completely.

6   Cut marshmallows in half and sprinkle top half (uncut side) with
     water. Then, while cookie is still a bit warm, press the cut side of
     the marshmallow on to the cookie.

7   Immediately cover the marshmallow with sprinkles.

8   Allow the cookies to cool completely. Enjoy!

What’s In a Name?

The marshmallow is actually a plant that belongs to the mallow family. Found mostly in Europe and western Asia, it grows
mainly in wet or marshy areas – hence the name “marshmallow.”
