These are more affectionately known to me as fractured-limb-smores cookies. They were made for my friend who got a stress fracture in his back while training for the decathlon. On the same day, my other friend fractured her foot while training for the high jump and I figured she could use some too. My coach conned me into making these for her (“no you have to agree to the favor before I tell you what it is.”) But I’m really glad I did since they have been on my list of things to bake for a long, long, time. Sugar can’t fix stress fractures but I’m hoping it will make pain go away temporarily.

NOTE: ALWAYS halve cookie recipes if you don’t want 500 billion-ish cookies. This still made a ton!! The original recipe calls for a tablespoon amount of dough but I did a 1/2 tablespoon and the cookies were the perfect size. Also, I didn’t have Hershey on hand, so I used left over gelt. Happy Hannukah, oy!
