Gluten Free S'More Cookie Bars

Sorry I haven't been around much. My Internet is so slow I just can't stand to be on my computer at home and I'm so busy at work I can't find time to fit in a few minutes here and there. I found out last week that I have a broken foot so I am in a big boot for this holiday season and can't drive. So that means a lot of shopping over the Internet. But the husband is being wonderful.

I made these S'more Cookie Bars the other night and they were wonderful. I would wait longer before you cut them though. They were still pretty hot when I cut them so they fell apart however; once they cooled they were a firm bar that was easy and delicious to eat.

S'More Cookie Bars

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp gluten free vanilla
1 1/3 cup Pamela's Baking Mix (or your personal gluten free flour blend)
3/4 gluten free graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp gluten free baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 large chocolate bars
1 1/2 cups Fluff

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8 inch square baking pan.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light. Beat in egg and vanilla.
Mix in flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the greased pan.

Place chocolate bars evenly over dough. Spread Fluff over the chocolate and place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff. (I found that it was easiest to flatten pieces of the dough into small pieces and laying them together)

Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned.

And enjoy....

During the Thanksgiving weekend we were able to spend some time with my husband's two great-nieces. They are so sweet. Here we are with Morgan and McKenna. (It's hunting season here in New York so we don't have to shave)

And of course no post would be complete without a new picture of Allie. Here she is with my dad on Thanksgiving.

To me, of course, the most important thing is the lovely lovely picture of your Allie. She's a gorgeous girl.

All kidding aside, I'm so sorry to hear that you broke your foot. I've done that too, fell down a flight of terrazzo stairs. Still had to walk though...8 weeks of clomping here and there in that wooden shoe.

Your smores turned out beautifully. Great Job!

Thanks Sheltie. The doctor figures I broke it from walking my beautiful Allie up in the woods all the time. She's worth it though.
