Sounds simple, but these are my favorite childhood cookies! My Mom made dozens of them and stored them in a lidded plastic ware container in the fridge. Her Mom used to make them for her too!

Making them is a snap. Simply break the graham crackers into small rectangles.

Lather on about a 1/2 tablespoon of your favorite icing then place another small graham cracker on top.

    That sounds fun. I bet they would be extra fun dipped in a bowl with a few sprinkles to add a splash of color. The cream cheese would hold them like glue.

      I’m so glad you posted this. I had to make and deliver dinner for a family last night and realized I hadn’t planned dessert. I grabbed the graham crackers & icing we had and then smooshed rainbow sprinkles into the sides. (I had a deep bowl with sprinkles that I dunked them in.) it was the perfect last minute dessert with a fun splash of color.

      Really Marybeth? I would have never guessed! I’m not a huge fan of chocolate but my girls would probably love it.

    I am not a fan of chocolate either but it is good on those graham crackers. I am sure part of it is the childhood memories but they are still good today.

    Carli, my mom had a very similar gooodie, but she called her filling ‘peanut butter icing’. And there was more than one way she would make that icing (depending on the ingredients on hand). If she had actual icing made and leftover, then it would get mixed into some peanut butter. Even easier is adding powdered sugar and a few drops of milk into the peanut butter. Mom’s peanut butter graham crackers were a frequent addition to the school lunch box.
