I call this the Angie because in all fairness, it was my friend Angie who introduced me to this marvelously, practically S’morgasmic recipe for the Saltine S’more. I’ve never been that keen on the sweetness of the traditional s’more but this combination of salty and sweet, bitter and tangy is what campfire dreams are made of. Dear Angie, thank you.
Earlier this week Food and Wine asked to feature my recipe for the Saltine S’more and I was both shocked and delighted at the prospect. It had been at least 4 years since I wrote the recipe for Celebrations and I had all but forgotten that it was floating around in the world wide web. Back when this was taken, I had a red point and shoot camera, it was a fun night of children running wild, campfire flames dancing and that endless night sky that is all too common in Washington. We were hosting a s’more party, and everyone brought something new to the table, but it was Angie who brought the Saltine S’more and changed my view on s’mores forevermore.
So here is it, back from the past, with new legs to run wild with… The Saltine S’more. It is simple really, 2 fresh from the packet Saltine crackers, one Reese’s Cup and a standard marshmallow, nicely browned and gooey on the inside. Eat it the hot off the fire, and soak up the summer night sky.
