Just in case you aren’t in the mood to sit by the campfire/bonfire because your significant other sprayed too much lighter fluid and everything smells like chemicals, we’ve found a recipe to get you S’more’d up before the flames ignite.
With these cookies you’ll still be the hit of the party (and won’t smell like smoke) and every kid (or adult) who gets their lucky mitts on one will probably love you forever. Forever ever? No promises.
We’ve seen the awesome campfire orange cakes as a substitute for the Sandlot classic before, but today a traditional campfire dessert gets the cookie treatment from our friend Risa at the Baked Perfection Blog. Full Recipe below!

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

In a medium bowl combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, salt, and dash of cinnamon.
