Graham Cracker Cookies


Growing up my mom used to make us these all the time. She would make them when ever she would have any leftover frosting from cookies or cakes. I had forgotten all about it until just recently when I had a little leftover frosting. Now MY kids LOVE these!

Break one stick of graham cracker in half. Frost one half. Add the other dry half of the cracker. (Like you're making a sandwich). Enjoy!

Here is a good recipe if you don't have leftover icing and need to make it from scratch!

1/2 cup margarine
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup milk

In a large bowl, beat the margarine, egg and vanilla, using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Stir in powdered sugar and cocoa until smooth. Beat in the milk, one tablespoon at a time, until the desired spreading consistency is reached. You may need to adjust the amount of milk used.

The Duncan Heinz Whipped Chocolate frosting is actually my very favorite icing to use! It's sooo creamy!
