Pam's Marshmallow Cookies

My Mom used to make these cookies a lot when we were little, and judging by the name of the recipe, I am guessing that she got this one from my Aunt Pam.

I made these last week to take to a barbecue and my kids were very disappointed that I didn't bring any leftovers back home. The cookies are very simple to make, so if I was a nice Mom, I'd just make another batch for the kids.... but I'm afraid I'd eat them all myself, so Claire and Marco are pretty much out of luck! Sorry kids! (Maybe I'll show them the pictures, instead)
