Graham Cracker Recipe; This delicious chocolate chip cookie uses graham cracker crumbs as a little sweet surprise.
Of all the social media out there, I might love Pinterest the best. I follow a lot of other food bloggers, and consequently, my feed is full of gorgeous meals, drool-worthy desserts, and decadent cookies.
Are you following me yet? Because you totally should be. I keep an entire pinboard devoted solely to cookies.
I guess you know how I feel about cookies.

Not long ago, I pinned these gooey S’mores Cookies from Kevin and Amanda, and I just could’t stop thinking about them. I wanted to create my own version, one without marshmallows.
Not that I have anything against marshmallows. I just wanted to keep it simple, like a plain old chocolate chip cookie with a little graham cracker surprise.
You would die if you saw me photographing these. First of all, the best thing I have for a backdrop is the dog kennel. I know that sounds really strange, but it’s handy and it works. I set the kennel on the table and leaned these white boards against it.
Then my brilliant teenage son, The Lizard, thought it would be a great idea to put the dog inside the kennel. Which was on the kitchen table. Which had cookies on it.
The kids were hanging around my photo shoot like zombies that have just found brains, waiting for the moment I would give them the okay to dive face first into the cookies. I had melted chocolate on my hands, and I was working really hard not to get the chocolate on my camera.
And then the doorbell rang. And the dog went nuts. The kids were running to the door, I was yelling, the dog was barking, it was chaos.
It’s lucky I had any cookies left to share with you!
My version of these cookies has less flour, so the cookies are very flat and soft. They would be totally fine with a little more flour.
And, although I didn’t use any, I think it would be totally appropriate to use 1/2 tsp. cinnamon in this cookie. Or you could use the cinnamon graham crackers, which would be delicious too.
So many options! Maybe I’ll try them with chocolate grahams sometime. I should check Pinterest and see if that’s been done already!
