surprise cookie recipeSurprise! There are 12 weeks until Christmas!

How is that possible? Didn’t I just put the beach chairs away?

This is my 3rd year participating in the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats, and I look forward to it every year. I love looking through my cookbooks and finding inspiration around the Internet and planning out what I am going to make. This year, I am starting with Martha Stewart’s Surprise Cookies. I have had this recipe pulled for a very long time, and finally got around to making them this afternoon. They were amazing, and going to be very hard to top. My family thinks that these might be the the best cookie I have ever made for them. That is saying a lot!

The cake is crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside, and it is covered with a smooth chocolate frosting. Which is pretty great all on its own, but when you take a bite, you find a marshmallow center. This is going to be your new favorite cookie recipe.
