Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

My grandmother was the head baker for a school district when I was a little girl.  It was back in the days when schools served homemade food.  She went to work early, early, early in the morning and baked dozens upon dozens of cookies, tarts or cakes every day. This is one of her recipes.

I had to make them before we move from Arizona because they don’t last in a damp climate.  I made them when we lived in Seattle and the marshmallows dissolved the next day.  SO.  If you live in a humid area, plan on eating all of them the first day.   That’s not really a hard thing to do.  They taste like a homemade Suzie Q.  Yum.

I was a little chintzy with the frosting, I think the next time I make them, I will glop it on a bit more so the marshmallows are more covered.
