Baking Monday: Graham Cracker Cookies

Hello friends! How have you been? I posted a photo of these homemade graham crackers on my Instagram page and got a request for the recipe. So I'm dusting off my Blogger account to share with you!

For the last two summers, we've been hosting a campfire and s'mores in our yard every Friday night during the summer. It is one of the most fun things we've ever done as a family and look forward to it every week! 

I have even done some special baking just for Friday S'mores! We have had gourmet s'mores made with peanut butter cookies, chocolate wafer cookies, gingersnaps (my previous favorite), and snickerdoodles. This week I tried homemade graham crackers!

After searching through quite a few recipes online (surprisingly, I couldn't find a single recipe in any of my cookie cookbooks), I ended up going with this one which was super easy to make in a food processor. The only change made was one tablespoon of vanilla instead of two (that seemed like a LOT of vanilla!) 

These had a really great flavor and softened up nicely with toasted marshmallow. Hershey's Special Dark chocolate is my favorite for s'mores! This recipe made 32 cookies with a 2.25" square cutter. I would go even smaller next time, because these cookies puffed up quite a bit. Thumbs up for extra special s'mores!
