This month’s Home Baker’s Challenge was conceived by me. A big part of my baking is to evoke emotion and connect with family and friends. There is at least one thing from your childhood that brings you back to a happy place. For me, it is Marshmallow Sandwich cookies from Nabisco. When I was a kid, my mother and I would go food shopping and we would buy a couple boxes. Inevitably, we would get in the car and end up opening a box and finishing it before we arrived home.
I don’t know when I realized that Nabisco stopped making them, but I know it was a sad day. For years, my family and I have talked about how badly we wanted one. So I started my quest to recreate them. This is the closest I have come. I’m sure I will continue to improve this recipe.
My fellow HBC bakers and I have put together this trip down memory lane. We hope that some of these recipes will bring you back to your childhood or at least to a happy place. 2020 could use a little more love. Click on the links above to get the recipes.
