Smores Cookies

Around here we are getting ready to move!! Due to this I have been using up everything I have in the house. Well I had a bag of marshmallows that I needed to use!! After searchign several recipes I found this recipe at Chocolate chip marshallow cookie which I renamed smores. I only had a tiny cookie due to my diet but man they are wonderful!! I will be giving most of these away to friends but I am sure my kids and husband will love!! I did modify some and will include in Italics!

1 cup shortening (I used butter)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs (used egg beaters)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (did not have any)

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in marshmallows, chips and walnuts. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars
