Jess’ (Addictive) Graham Cracker Cookies

Graham Cracker Cookies

I wish there was a better name for these cookies than just merely Graham Cracker Cookies.  I am not entirely sure what I would call them, but some proposed ideas are;

  • A Little Bit O’ Heaven Cookies
  • Amazing Deliciousness Cookies
  • The Most Addictive Cookies Ever
  • Crack on a Graham Cracker

My friend Jess made these cookies for our December Book Club, and I knew that we absolutely had to make these — and New Year’s Eve seemed like the perfect occasion.  Jess said that these were super simple, and while they weren’t *hard*, they were definitely putzy.  Since Marc and I don’t really make too many sweets, he was pretty much terrified of the boiling butter/sugar combination (I believe Marc put the fear of God in me, by calling it “napalm”).  BUT … we made them, and it was a huge hit.  My Grandpa is waiting for me to make more, and to mail them in a care package.

In case you want to make your own Bit O’ Heaven cookies, here’s the recipe.

Jess’ (Addictive) Graham Cracker Cookies

  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • About 3/4 package of honey graham crackers
  • Chocolate chips
  • Almond slivers
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Break graham crackers into small rectangles.  Place on cookie sheet in one layer.
  3. Melt two sticks of butter in a saucepan.  Add 1/2 c. sugar, and heat until boiling.  Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Pour butter mixture evenly over graham crackers.  Use a spoon or spatula to make sure the butter is even.  Do not let butter and sugar mix get cold, or it will separate.
  5. Place several almond slivers in the middle of each cookie, and bake in oven for 8-10 minutes until bubbly and lightly browned.
  6. Line two new, cool cookie sheets with foil.  Immediately after removing cookies from oven, take off hot cookie sheets and place on foil-lined cool cookie sheets.
  7. Melt chocolate chips and drizzle over top of the cookies.
  8. Place in refrigerator to cool and harden.

Yum — serve and enjoy!
