I got this recipe in my email from my friend BETTY CROCKER, lol..and decided to try it. I love recipes that are simple and semi homemade, this was right up my alley. I decided to do a few things different though, and couldn't call them pillows..for I used small marshmallows and drizzled the icing instead of frosting it. This is my version..baked them today, the picture is my own. Gotta admit these are mighty good!
Mix all ingredients for cookie together until soft dough forms. On ungreased cookies sheets drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart. (I used a bakers cookie scoop..small size, works wonderful)
Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press 5 small marshmallows on top of the cookies return to oven for 2 more minutes until marshmallows soften and puff a little. Remove from oven cool for 2 minutes then move to cooling racks. Cool completely for 15 minutes. (Cookies will still be a little soft, it is fine, they set up as they cool)
While they are cooling..take a heavy duty saucepan and melt chocolate, whipping cream, butter and vanilla on low heat until melted and smooth. Stir in powdered sugar, mix until well blended and smooth.
Take a decorators' bag or a large plastic storage bag and pour the chocolate into the bag..(make sure the chocolate isn't real hot, let it cool a bit..) snip the corner of the bag at the very tip and then drizzle chocolate over each cookie as shown above in my picture. Now top with a walnut half, or several small walnut pieces. Allow frosting to set..then enjoy!
