Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Yes, I’ve got another chocolate chip cookie recipe for you!

Today’s amazing cookie recipe is a bit different–it uses graham cracker crumbs. These Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies are a crispier cookie after a day or two. That is when it is perfect for dipping into a cup of coffee.

These are really quite good and received a thumbs up from our kids and a good friend! Can you ever have too many variations of a classic recipe? I think not!

The cookbook was a gift from our wonderful neighbor. These cookies were called "Mary Ann's Cookies" in the cookbook by Marion Jacobsen. I changed the name to reflect the unique combination!
