S'mores cookies for 'Cookie Swap for a Cause'

Today I had the pleasure of participating in the Cookie Swap for a Cause hosted by Boston Food Swap and the Swapaholics in Fort Point! All proceeds from the event benefited Cookies for Kids' Cancer, so it was great to see so many people who baked and came out to support this awesome charity.

I chose to make a delicious S'mores cookie recipe that I've made a few times before and people always love, and sure enough, they were a hit at the event!
