Gluten Free Chocolate-Marshmallow Pillows


Ingredients:

Cookies:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 box Betty Crocker® Gluten Free chocolate chip cookie mix
2/3 cup chopped pecans
15 large marshmallows, cut in half

Frosting:
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
1/3 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2cup powdered sugar

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, stir 1/2 cup butter and the egg until blended. Stir in cookie mix until soft dough forms. Stir in pecans. Onto ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 3 inches apart.

Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven; immediately press marshmallow half lightly, cut side down, on top of each cookie. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or just until marshmallows begin to soften. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High about 1 minute, stirring until smooth. Add whipping cream, 1 teaspoon butter and the vanilla; blend well. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth.

Spread frosting over each cooled cookie, covering marshmallow. Let stand until frosting is set.
