Cookies are always comforting and always on trend. Chef Murphy presented this recipe at a Cookies for Kids Cancer Bake Sale to benefit pediatric cancer research. His S’mores Cookies competed with treats made by a number of celebrated chefs from such restaurants as Gramercy Tavern, Locanda Verde and Momofuku Milk Bar. Grownups vied with the kids to sample all the baked goods for a worthy cause.
