A Facebook message from an old school friend back home in OZ, pantry products to use and a need for a packing de-stress sparked a new cookie experiment yesterday.  So here you are, 'S'mores Cookies'!  The last KitchenAid experiment before I hand my beloved machine to my partner in-crime, my BF and road trip guru...Nikki :-) 
Trust me it was a quick handover, a moment of tears and frustration..."KitchenAid WHY do you rip off the Aussies?A nation of born and raised bakers.  $800 (Aussie dollars)...Really??? It's criminal, the Yanks are a nation built on packet mixes...Costco - $200...this is consumer madness!'
So rant over, I now  leave you with the recipe...
