Recipe by True Texas
From Southern Living Magazine. Simple recipe for the kids to try. Whether an adult or a child makes these cookies, it's a good idea to have a few extra graham crackers on hand because they break easily. The kids will enjoy eating the "mistakes" while new crackers are being prepared. When slicing the crackers be sure and use a serrated knife, gently sawing across the top of each. If you try to cut them in one firm motion they will probably break. These are very cute and small hands can decorate them easily.

- 2 tablespoons whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
