Top Review by The Scone

Pretty good recipe to try, especially when you run out of eggs and want to make some kind of cookie. A few suggestions to dress up the graham crackers a little: 1) Prick the tops with a fork before baking. 2) Spread honey on the tops before baking; or wet the tops with a little water, and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar before baking.
