Marceille's Graham Cracker Cookies

For Christmas, I'm sharing my grandmother's Graham Cracker Cookie recipe with you... Enjoy!

1 box Graham Crackers
1 cup (2 sticks) Butter - substitutes won't work!
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped pecans (optional and yummy!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Break crackers into desired size (squares are good, but I used quarters since this batch was for a cookie exchange) and arrange flat on an ungreased jelly roll pan.  (Edges on the pan are important here!)

Combine butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan.  Stir and heat on MEDIUM (so it doesn't burn) until caramel mixture boils. 

Boil 2 minutes and then spread over crackers with the help of a spoon. Sprinkle on pecans.


Bake 7-9 minutes (only 6 minutes in my extra-hot oven)

Immediately remove cookies one at a time to a cooling rack or well-buttered wax paper.

Merry Christmas!
