Marshmallows are a sweet staple in Amish kitchens, especially around Christmas, when they find their way into fudges and cookies, and pies. I'm not someone who particularly enjoys eating a marshmallow straight out of the bag. There's just too little payoff to enduring chewing through the sweet, spongy, sticky glob. But if you combine marshmallows with a cookie or a brownie, well, now you're talking!
