Raspberry & Hibiscus Marshmallow CookiesMADE BY MALVI IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA

Laura Curtis calls her marshmallow sandwich cookies "malvis," from malvavisco, the Spanish word for marshmallow. She was inspired by toasty s'mores and summer campfires on Lake Michigan, but she picked up her technical skills at the Culinary Institute of America, and then working as a research and development chef for a large supermarket chain.

These confections are delicious straight, but magical things happen when you microwave them for 5 seconds or put them in a toaster oven for 30 seconds. Pack them as a glorified s'more for your next glamorous camping trip.
