This week I made Graham Cracker Cookies, which I know sounds a little odd but are actually really delicious.
When I first read this recipe and I was 100% sold on it, it seemed a little strange. Mostly because it doesn’t have any flour in it, the structure is graham cracker crumbs. I was kind of afraid that they would come out like little pie crusts, which also sounds yummy. I didn’t think they would rise and be chewy like a good cookie but I was totally wrong.
The recipe calls for 2 cups of cracker crumbs and yes I’m sure you can grind your own but even when I’m making a pie crust I just go ahead and buy the boxed crumbs. They are just as good and you don’t have to spend time making them and you can get right to the baking, which gets you that much closer to eating. And that’s always a good thing in my book. I followed the recipe as is and my bake time was 9 minutes and then I let them cool on the pan for about another 2 minutes before moving them. I don’t like cooling my cookies on a cooling rack (cause I don’t like messing up the bottom of my cookies with ridges) so I cool mine on a freshly foiled table. And if you bake enough cookies you soon looks like you have a little cookie army, or maybe that’s just me.
In the end I would give these cookies a big thumbs up. They were super simple and fast to make and they are delicious. It’s like eating a soft, buttery, puffy graham cracker. This one will go into my most make these again folder.
