Family Favorites...Marshmallow Cookies

When Myrna and I were kids, our Grandmother, especially, would make this inexpensive treat for us, when she was already using her oven.  Today, my grandson, Josh, asks for them when he visits.   Myrna made it for her kids too.  It’s so simple, there is no real recipe.  I have made them on a pan in our covered grill too...check frequently!
There is something about the sweet salty taste and gooey marshmallow and crispy cracker.  A good way to use up hardened marshmallows or stale saltines too.  They are addictive and adults as well as children will want their share.
Marshmallow Cookies
Heat your oven or toaster oven to 350-400°.  On a cookie sheet, arrange as many saltine squares as you wish – 2 or 3 per person.  Cut regular marshmallows in half (at the equator) and put a half on each saltine, cut side down.Bake, watching carefully, until puffed and toasted (like campfire marshmallows).  Remove from oven, let cool slightly, and serve.   We don’t store them…they never last long enough.
The kids and grandkids will be asking for them…”Grandma, can you make some of those marshmallow cookies?” just as Myrna and I did.  They are also a favorite of my husband as well.


  1. Yes, they are still among my favorites and I can no longer have the crackers. However if you can, I highly recommend these.

  2. We always made them with Ritz crackers, peanut butter and then half a marshmallow. My sweet Mother made them for us and I made them for our daughter. Now I make them once in a while for me and husband - especially on a cold night with hot cocoa!

  3. That sounds good also. Nothing like a simple treat is there.

  4. Yum! I love the simple things in life. Life can be overwhelming. I believe I'll have chocolate milk with Marshmallow cookies tonight!
    Thank you!
