Graham Cracker Cookies

graham-cracker-cookies-1Last weekend was a great one for baking, with the crisp air making it perfectly clear that fall is here.  We found a recipe for Graham Cracker Cookies – which sounds like “a recipe for graham crackers,” but it totally is not.  These cookies use crushed graham crackers in place of the flour that you would normally expect in a cookie recipe!

While these are quite good even without icing, it’s even better to melt a Sweet Jumbles marshmallow on top!  We used Pumpkin Pie Marshmallows, but you can use any flavor of your choice.

15 sheets graham crackers
¼ c sugar
2 T packed brown sugar
½ t baking soda
¼ t salt
6 T unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg, lightly beaten
½ t vanilla extract
Sweet Jumbles marshmallows


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line baking sheet with parchment or Silpat.
  • Put graham crackers in a zip-top bag and crush with a rolling pin until broken down into sandy crumbs.  (Can also be done in a food processor.)
  • In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda and salt.  Whisk to combine.
  • Add cooled melted butter, egg, and vanilla.  Stir to combine into a soft dough.
  • Using a spoon, or just your hands, create cookie dough balls of about 1.5 Tablespoons each.  Space on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  Gently push down dough to very slightly flatten.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cookies have slightly browned at edges.  Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, cut a marshmallows into thirds.  Preheat broiler.
  • Place one 1/3 size marshmallow on each cookie.  Place on a cookie sheet in broiler for approximately 2 minutes, checking every 30 seconds and rotating cookie tray as necessary. Cookies are done when marshmallows have slightly melted and are golden.
