    Zanni's Note:

    This is a recipe my family has made at Christmas for years. The marshmallows are so nice and gooey inside the chocolate cookie.

      What a nice change of pace for a Christmas cookie! It seems everyone makes the same kind of cookies year after year. I'm always looking for something different, and this fit the bill quite nicely. The dough was really easy to work with. I didn't find it necessary to flatten it out first, though- just shaped the dough around each marshmallow. I think it would be helpful to know that the cookies don't spread, they just puff out a little. So you can put quite a few on each cookie tray. The yield is fairly accurate- I got a few more than 64 out of the batch.
