So, there I was standing in the pantry, feeling like I needed a cookie. Then I saw the oats and thought, hey, I’ll make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Then I saw the graham crackers and I thought, nope. Forget the oats. I’m grinding up some graham crackers and turning them into cookies. A cracker cookie! A delicious, chocolate filled graham cracker cookie that makes me weep with joy.


So, that’s how these happened. Now you know.

The texture is a bit different from your average cookie and the flavor really does shout graham crackers if you ask me. The melty chocolate chips are optional, except not, because chocolate.


Chocolate Chip Graham Cracker Cookies – a cracker cookie? Yep, and it’s delicious!

Just wait until you see what I do to this cookie base next time. I have grand plans. Oh, do I have grand plans. UPDATED: I turned these into s’mores cookies!


Enjoy these cookies any time when you follow the instructions for how to freeze cookies!

I just made these and they came out delicious! The only things I did different was freeze the cookies as I warmed up my oven which takes about 10 minutes. I reduced the chocolate chips to 3/4 because I added a chocolate covered marshmallow on top when I took them out of the oven. It gave it that s'mores touch! This is a very easy and yummy recipe!

What do you think of using butterscotch chips instead of chocolate since that is what i have on hand?

Hello! I haven't attempted this recipe with this substitution, so I am not sure of the result. They sound delicious, though! If you happen to give it a try, I'd love to know how they turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by. -Jamie

i just had a really quick question. so i’m planning on making these and do they spread out a lot? and if they do is there anyway that they can hold shape?

I have 2 packages of anise pizzelles. We’re not crazy about these cookies…do you have an idea of how to put these to good use…a yummy dessert?
