Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

In a food processor, place the first 5 ingredients (butter - flour) in bowl of processor and pulse until clumps form. Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead until it comes together in a ball.

Step 3

Roll out dough on a floured sheet of parchment parchment paper to 1/4 inch thick (if it is very soft chill for 20 minutes or so). Cut out rounds with a 2 inch round cookie cutter. Gather up dough scraps and roll out again until you cut out 36 rounds.Place rounds on parchments lined cookie sheets, spreading 1 inch apart.

Step 4

Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on baking sheets and then transfer half of the cookies to a wire rack.

Step 5

Meanwhile turn over cookies remaining on the cookie sheets and top with 1 marshmallow, flat side down (marshmallows need to stand up evenly on the cookies). Return cookies to oven and bake cookies until marshmallows are softened and beginning to puff but not brown (just under 5 minutes). Remove from oven and top with cooled cookies (making a cookie sandwich) -- the weight of the cookies will push marshmallows to the edges. Let stand 1hour.

Step 6

In a small microwave bowl place chocolate and melt in microwave oven (20 seconds at a time until chocolate melts) or use a double boiler to melt chocolate. Dip half of each cookie sandwich in melted chocolate, then sprinkle top of the chocolate sides with pretzel or sea salt. Repeat with all cookie sandwiches. Chill for 15 minutes before serving.

Step 7

***Cookies can be made 2 weeks ahead and stored in an airtight container.
