We had s'mores last night as a sort of special dessert. The ingredients I bought aren't frugal, but with my penny-pinching on groceries I was able to afford Dandies marshmallows*, organic chocolate, and good graham crackers**. It was, after all, my Little Boy's second birthday--and I wasn't really feeling up to baking last night. About halfway into making the s'mores, though, I had a flash of brilliance. I'd just made some lemon curd with our CSA eggs and thought that maybe--just maybe--I could make s'mores with lemon curd instead of chocolate. The s'mores were... fantastic. Just like lemon meringue pie, but in classic s'more form.
*I buy Dandies because I refuse to support unethical sourcing of gelatin, and, well, because [Dandies] are fantastic marshmallows.
**Please source gluten-free graham-style crackers or make your own... The crackers in the photo are not gluten-free. (I have to eat gluten until my endoscopy in two weeks and so am cheating on this post because the s'mores turned out so well and I wanted to share.) Also, gluten-free graham crackers are super easy to make. Google for a good recipe.
