Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies (aka Getting Creative With Leftover S’more Supplies!)

13 Oct

Fall is by far my favorite season – I love everything about it – and one of the things I love most of all is the cooler weather – which makes turning on the oven for baking much more bearable!

I may adore fall, but I have to admit, summer is starting to grow on me too – helps that this year we moved to a new house with a pool and a bigger yard! Unfortunately, the Upstate New York weather gods were NOT smiling down on us this summer, with it’s cool, rainy days not fit for swimming, biking, or bonfires. Which brings me to my dilemma:

I bought all these s’more supplies, thinking we would get to have a BUNCH of fires this summer – and we didn’t have ANY – NOT EVEN ONE! Now what am I supposed to do with all this stuff? Well, when I think about it, these items could make for some pretty good baking supplies, and in fact, I think I have figured out a way to use up some of these graham crackers:

The finished product was pretty delicious – not hugely different from your standard chocolate chip cookie, but there is a slight graham-y taste which is nice, and the difference in texture is good, too!

Nothing like a plate of warm cookies on a cool fall day!

(My littlest critic approved too – so much so that he helped himself to several of them – apparently he can reach the counter unassisted now – eek!)

Hmm now I just need to find a use for the extra marshmallows and chocolate (aside from just shoving them all in my mouth which is likely what will happen if I am being honest…)
