We are in the countdown – 5 days from now, I will be in New York City. I am so excited, but a little bit stressed out right now. For the first time in a VERY long time, my job has actually been busy. So trying to get everything done before I leave has proved to be a little difficult. Not to mention that it has taken away from my precious blogging time! So I apologize right now if I haven’t been around to everyone’s blogs like I wish I could be. The next 3 days at work are going to be crazy, so I’m sorry for my absence around the blogging community!

But before I get to work, I wanted to bring you this cookie recipe that I made last week. It comes from the April issue of Every Day With Rachael Ray. The minute I saw these Rocky Road Sandwich Cookies, I knew I wanted them!

The actual recipe makes 5 large sandwich cookies. I made half the recipe, but made my cookies smaller – and actually ended up with 24 single cookies. It is a chocolate chip cookie, sandwiched with marshmallow cream to give it that rocky road spin. I am so glad I made these smaller, because this is a true sugar shock! I could eat one, and I was on sweetness overload. I would not recommend making them bigger because they are so sweet and a little goes a long way. They are also very messy, so I would suggest sandwiching them as you go along. As you can tell in the picture, even the 3 I sandwiched were slipping and sliding! The cookies themselves are actually really good chocolate chip cookies. There is no white sugar, just brown, and I really liked the flavor that they had. Plus, they were very soft, exactly like I love my chocolate chip cookies!!

Rocky Road Sandwich Cookies
from Every Day with Rachael Ray May 2008

Ingredients:
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
1 cup chocolate chips
½ cup chopped almonds
10 tablespoons marshmallow cream

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350˚. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. Using a mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the egg. Mix in the salt, baking powder and baking soda at low speed, then mix in the vanilla and flour. Stir in the chocolate chips and almonds.

Drop 10 rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake the cookies until golden at the edges and slightly soft in the center, about 12 minutes. Transfer the cookie sheets to racks to cool completely.

Sandwich the cookies with 2 tablespoons marshmallow each.

  4. Patsyk says:

    Enjoy NYC! We love it there, and spend as much time in the warmer months wandering around.

    Those cookies look incredible! I’m definitely going to have to make them, I just know both of my boys would love them!

  5. Lina says:

    How exciting NYC! I went there for the first time in Dec and I loved it! Your cookies look sooo good~~~

  6. kristen says:

    Oh yes… I remember those cookies! Yum!
    I hope you have fun in NY! It always works that way with work, doesn’t it?

  7. Abby says:

    You are a baking/blogging/working fiend. I don’t see how you do it! The cookies look great, you can always cut the sweetness with ice cream, right? HA. Kidding.

    Enjoy NYC! I haven’t been in years. But so many people I know are visiting! I might have to go later when the lima bean arrives.

  8. Steph says:

    The cookies look irrisistable! Have a blast in NYC! I’m trying to talk my husband into taking me there this fall! Crossing my fingers!

    I love rocky road ice cream…I’ll have to try these. Did you post the full or half recipe?

  10. Kevin says:

    Chocolate chip cookies with marshmallow cream sound really good. A trip to New York sounds like fun.

  11. Elle says:

    Have a fun and safe trip! Those look delicious!

  12. Gretchen Noelle says:

    Messy and gooey – they sound great!

  13. Marc says:

    Okay, so you’re coming to the city! I have a couple of recommendations for you…

    1) For very good and relatively reasonably-priced food, try Veselka at 2nd Ave. and 9th St. The beef stroganoff there is terrific and so is the borscht (beet soup). Pierogies are good as well. And if you’re a chocolate nut, do order the baked chocolate custard or triple chocolate mousse cake for dessert…you will be in heaven.

    A couple of blocks down 2nd Ave. on the opposite side of the street (near 7th St.) there is a little dumpy divy-looking hole-in-the-wall called Pommes Frites. They serve Belgian Fries. That’s it…fries and drinks, with 25 different flavors of mayonnaise to go with them, and of course, ketchup if you must, but you really should try some of the mayos. The Mango Chutney and the Rosemary Garlic are my favorites, but the curry ketchup is also good. You will never have better fries! They are amazing.

    If you like offbeat musicals and want to see one of the best on Broadway, I’d encourage you to see Passing Strange at the Belasco Theatre. It’s not a show for kids, so if you have kids in tow, perhaps Mary Poppins or Billy Elliot.

    Have a fabulous trip!!

  14. Mary says:

    Have fun in NYC! It’s such a great city. And those cookies look so delicious!

  15. Elle says:

    Delicious looking cookies…I like the brown sugar and no white sugar kind, too.
    Hpe the job stress lets up a bit and ENJOY New York City!!! Such a great place for a food lover to visit. I’m envious, although I’ll be in L.A. over the weekend, so that’s fun, too.

  16. Grace says:

    i guess rachael ray has a few redeeming qualities–these look fantastic. i’ve found that most of my friends think marshmallow cream is gross, but i could even eat it plain. they just don’t know what they’re missing.

    meanwhile, have a blast in nyc! i’m making my first trip there in the middle of june, so i’ll be excited to read about your experiences!

  17. Gigi says:

    Enjoy your time in NYC Deborah. I have never been myself, but still aspire to travel there one day. These cookies sound like something that should travel on the plane with you…maybe take a really big side trip out west and deliver some my way..wink…wink…I have also bestowed an award upon you when you get the chance to accept it. Cheers, Val
