What is the best part of having a campfire? Having stories to tell? Having campfire games to play? Or how about the desserts, you can make over the campfire? S’mores that is.
I tried making these last weekend and it turned into cookie pancakes. I tried again much more successful this time around. The good thing about baking is trial and error. Trying things if it doesn’t work, try it again a different way. They might not be the prettiest cookies but they taste excellent, and they get jumbled up in your stomach anyways. Who cares, right?
