Baked S'mores

Baked S'mores 1/2 cup butter, room temperature 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup sugar 1 large egg 1 tsp vanilla 1 1/3 cups flour 1/4 tsp salt (optional) 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (approximately 5 full graham crackers) 1 tsp baking powder 2 or 3 super-sized (5 oz.) chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s) 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (or mini marshmallows if you must!) Preheat oven to 350. Grease bottom of pan. In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined. Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. Two 5 oz. Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly [for 8 by 8] side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer. [use 3 Hershey's for 12 by 8 pan] Spread marshmallow fluff evenly over the chocolate layer. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the creme. This is most easily done by putting the second half of the dough in a gallon size freezer bag. Use your palms or rolling pin to flatten it out, and then use scissors to cut down both long sides of the bag, so it will open up book-style. Open it up carefully, and the dough will stick on one side of the bag. Then place the bag, dough side down, on the other three layers. From there peel the bag up and carefully spread the dough where it is uneven. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely or almost completely for the melty factor before cutting into bars.

Apple Pie Eggrolls

Apple Pie Eggrolls Makes 8 egg rolls FILLING: 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch pieces 1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped for seeds 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon Pinch of salt 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about half a lemon) EGG ROLLS: Eight 6-inch square egg roll wrappers 2 eggs, beaten Peanut oil, for frying Powdered sugar, for dusting For the filling: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and vanilla bean and saute for about 2 minutes. Add the sugar, cinnamon and salt to the pan and cook until the apples start to turn a light caramel-golden brown but aren't falling apart, 6 to 8 minutes. The apples should still have some tooth to them. Add the flour and cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, to remove the raw taste from the flour. Fold in the lemon juice. Spread the filling out in an even layer on a baking sheet and refrigerate until cold. For the egg rolls: Arrange an egg roll wrapper in a diamond shape on a board in front of you. Brush the borders with beaten egg. Spoon 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons of the filling into the center of the wrapper. Take care to leave about 1 inch between the filling and the edges of the wrapper. Fold the end of the wrapper nearest you over the filling, then fold the sides over. Finally, roll the wrapper into a tight cylinder, tucking and tightening as you go. Repeat with the remaining wrappers until all the filling is used. As you go, remember to keep the unused wrappers, as well as the finished egg rolls, covered with a towel to prevent them from drying out. Add 4 to 5 inches of oil to a heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven and heat to 350 degrees F. Fry the egg rolls in batches of 4 until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet. Serve dusted with powdered sugar.
