Cookies that are made with graham crackers – yeah! So crisp on the edges and soft inside – buttery and not too sweet. Perfect for a cup of tea!
So here I am again, saving Mr. Graham Crackers. I didn’t want anything related to s’mores this time. Let me say that I want Mr. Graham Crackers to be the star. I spent hours searching for recipes that I think could be great and one of the things I found is a recipe for Graham Cracker cookies. At first, I had doubts at myself. When I saw how easy it is to make and by imagining how these would turn out, I was sold.
These turned amazing! The cookies are not to sweet and it has a buttery flavor – wow! I gave away some and they all loved the cookies! They didn’t believe it was made with graham crackers. For me, these are fantastic with a cup of tea. Well, a tea lover here! 😀

Graham Cracker Cookies
- 15 sheets graham crackers (you need about 2 cups of crumbs)
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 6 unsalted butter, melted
- 1 large beaten egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350F, placing the rack in the middle of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a food processor with the blade attachment, pulse the graham crackers until you get a sandy texture. You can also place them in a large ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to crush them. Transfer to a large bowl.
- In the bowl with graham cracker crumbs, add white sugar, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Mix to incorporate.
- Add butter, egg and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
- Using a medium ice cream scoop, scoop out dough (or about 1 1/2 tbsp) and roll using your palms to shape into a ball. Place into the lined baking sheet, making sure to give them enough space away from each other (about 2 inches apart).
- Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the edges turned light brown. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Using an offset spatula, remove from the baking sheet and transfer to a cooling rack to cool further.
