Cookie Recipe #333 - Church Windows
This was a request from my sister-in-law, Angie, whose Grandmother made them when she was a child. My neighbor, Gail, makes this delicious cookie with her nieces, Amanda and Megan, every Christmas season for their Christmas experience (rather than a gift). The recipe is very simple, only 3 ingredients, but oh-so-good! Mostly chocolate reigns here along with dots of marshmallows.
Ingredients: 1 (12 ounce)package semisweet chocolate chips, 1 stick butter, 1 package colored marshmallows (I used the red and green Christmas version).
Instructions: Melt the chocolate chips and butter either in the microwave or on top of the stove, stirring until butter and chocolate are both melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir occasionally until slightly cooled. Add in marshmallows in a folding motion until completely covered with chocolate.
Drop on 2 sheets of waxed paper (or parchment paper) and form into 2 logs about 12 inches long. Wrap tightly in the waxed paper and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours. Remove to cutting surface and cut into 1/2-inch slices.
Makes about 50 church windows.
