This old, old recipe is one of the first ones I ever made. We always had these ingredients in the house when I was little, so if someone wanted something sweet (this was way before 24 hour supermarkets, by the way), we'd whip up a batch of these sandwich cookies. You can make them any size you want - use a whole graham cracker square, or break the squares into little rectangles and frost those.
I first tasted this fabulous recipe when my great-aunt, Louella Mundale, made them for a family gathering. They are crisp, rich, and absolutely delicious.
These chocolate cookies are made with melted chocolate, cocoa powder, crushed vanilla wafer cookies, and of course, bourbon. You can use rum if you'd like, or substitute apple juice or another fruit juice if you want to make them for children.
This is one of the easiest recipes ever. With some supervision at the stove, this is a wonderful recipe for small children to make. The tempering method helps cool down the chocolate a bit so it won't burn tiny fingers. These cookies can be as elaborate or as simple as you like.
This easy recipe is a great choice for a child's first recipe. You can crush the cookies and nuts in a heavy-duty plastic ziplock bag instead of the food processor to make it totally kid-friendly. The white chocolate chips, even when melted, don't get hot enough to burn.
This simple cookie is a variation on the cracker/peanut butter/melted chocolate cookie. I like it because it uses vanilla wafers, makes the filling creamy and sweet, and loads on the chocolate.
