>This month’s Martha Stewart Everyday foods had a recipe for a doctored up graham cracker that reminded me of cookies my grandma used to make. I think I had the recipe once, but I was horrified by how much butter the recipe called for, so I never made them. Or maybe I am thinking of her pita chips. Mmmmm. My grandma made me a bag of both of those treats to take in the car when I moved with Dave to Colorado almost 15 years ago, and that was the last time I ever ate them. I think they may have made it as far is Iowa, but probably not.
I wish I could link to the Martha recipe, because I am feeling too lazy to type it up, but I don’t see it on her page yet. My grandma’s recipe was butter and sugar baked into graham crackers, with chocolate chips spread over the top when they come out of the oven. Martha’s had toffee chips too, and almonds, and sea salt. I screwed up the recipe by using heath chips instead of toffee, and chocolate chips separately, but they were still really good. I am thinking of making them again, but just trying to recreate my grandma’s version. It’s going to be hard to skip the salt at the end though, I have been loving sweet desserts with a little salt lately.
>You should have come home for Easter. Linda made the pita chips and the graham cracker thingies. YUM. By the way, have you ever watched that show called "Whatever, Martha!" Hilarious!!
>Megan, my mom makes something similar, except she places one pecan on each cracker. Well, half a pecan. Half a SHELLED pecan. No matter…I just take the pecan off anyway. I am so going to try the heath pieces and or chocolate chips. Your blog is the gift that keeps on giving.
>Meg,I think she started substituting margerine for half of the butter, then started using really cheap margerine substitutes and they didnt come out. I don't remember them with chocolate…Good times
>please make them again. you should sell them out of your desk drawer at work.
