After School Treats

Remember when you were a kid and you'd walk in the door after school and find your absolute favorite thing sitting on the kitchen table? An especially nice ending to what may have been a trying day. What was your favorite? Chocolate chip cookies? Banana Snackin' Cake? My favorite was graham cracker cookies. Okay, and also pudding. And Banana Snackin' Cake, too. (does anyone remember those but me?)

What is a graham cracker cookie? Quite simply frosting sandwiched between two graham crackers. At our house it was usually chocolate or lemon. After making many, many cupcakes for school functions and birthday parties, I ended up with extra vanilla frosting. What to do with a bit of frosting - ah ha! Graham cracker cookies.

They take all of about 5 minutes to make and are better after they've sat for a bit since they get a bit soft.

And by the way, don't bother to make them with homemade frosting.

They just wouldn't be the same.
