Cuckoo Cookies

Recipe by Marlene.
READY IN: 19mins




  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Cream shortening and sugar.
  • Add eggs, mixing well.
  • Stir in milk.
  • (is going to be VERY RUNNY, careful!:).
  • Add soda, salt, vanilla, cocoa, and flour.
  • Mix well.
  • **just a heads up** This dough is VERY SOFT.
  • Almost sticky even.
  • But I didn't add more flour, I left the recipe as it was.
  • Drop slightly heaping teaspoonfuls onto a sprayed cookie sheet.
  • (I did 12 to a sheet and they didn't spread out and touch each other).
  • Bake for 6 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven and top each cookie with 1 marshmallow half, cut side down.
  • Return to oven, bake an additional 3 minutes.
  • ***Ifyou wanted to add a walnut half, I would do it at this point, stick it right into the soft marshmallow***.
  • Marshmallow will be puffy, but will fall a bit after being out of the oven awhile.
  • Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing to cookie rack to finish cooling.
  • Mix all ingredients well.
  • Take a small spoon, a teaspoon would be plenty, scoop up some frosting and drizzle over cookies.
  • The recipe says to spread cookies with frosting.
  • NO WAY!
  • It rips the marshmallow all up and looks awful.
  • So, I added a bit more milk than the original recipe called for, to make the frosting more like a glaze so it would look nicer.
