Brown Sugar Graham Cookies



These cookies are so simple, and SO good... I grew up with them, and I have no idea where my mom got the recipe.  Mom made them last Christmas, and we realized that while these cookies are good with light brown sugar, they are AMAZING with dark brown sugar.  It makes a big difference!  


Brown Sugar Graham Cookies
Makes about 48, depending on how you cut them


Ingredients:

1lb. box Nabisco graham crackers (3 packs), broken into squares
1 ½ cups unsalted butter (3 sticks)
2 C. packed dark brown sugar
1 C chopped walnuts

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.  
  2. Spread 1 layer graham crackers in greased 10 x 15” pan.  You may need to break them into the small rectangles to get a full layer. 
  3. Combine HALF of butter and HALF of brown sugar (3/4 cup and 1 cup, respectively) in small saucepan.  Bring to a boil and let boil 3 minutes.  Pour syrup over crackers; bake for 10 mins.
  4. Meanwhile, combine remaining butter and brown sugar in the saucepan, making another batch of the syrup.  Add walnuts when it starts to boil. 
  5. When the pan comes out of the oven, add another layer of grahams (It’s important to act quickly when adding the second layer, otherwise the layers don’t stick together). Pour syrup over, and bake 10 more minutes.
  6. When slightly cool cut in strips.  If you wait too long to cut, they break.

If I only think about their name, they seem like a really healthy cookie. How names can be deceiving! They have all the buttery, sugary goodness that makes a cookie wonderful. LOVE IT
