    Barb Gertz's Note:

    A simple to make yummy cookie.I found the recipe in the Good Housekeeping magazine Christmas cookies section December 2005. Note: I think that these cookies would also be good using chocolate graham crackers or drizzling melted chocolate over the tops of cookies.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preaheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Place graham crackers side by side in ungreased jelly roll pan,(Make sure to use pan size called for; Crackers should cover entire pan with NO spaces in between) I lined the pan with release foil, this way the graham crackers fit really good in the pan.
    3. 3
      In a 1-quart saucepan, combine butter and sugar; heat to boiling over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, Boil 2 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly.
    4. 4
      Spread mixture evenly over graham crackers; sprinkle with almonds and sesame seeds.
    5. 5
      Bake 18 to 19 minutes or until graham crackers are slightly brown and butter bubbles and turns golden; WATCH CAREFULLY during the last 2 to 3 minutes of baking to make sure graham crackers do not over brown.
    6. 6
      Note: my cookies were done in 16 minutes.
    7. 7
      While cookies are still in pan, with knife, IMMEDIATLY cut each graham cracker crosswise in half.
    8. 8
      With metal spatula, transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
    9. 9
      Store cookies in tightly covered container, with wax paper between layers,in refrigerator up to 1 month or freeze up to 3 months.

      I made this recipe twice. Both time I had issues with the butter separating. The first time, the "oily" butter separated from the sugar, leaving something like a brittle, so I discarded the oil, spread the brittle on the graham crackers and continued with the recipe. This baked up nicely and "stuck" to the crackers. The second time, I tried cooking the butter and sugar longer ... still, this "oily" separation. I added the almonds to this mixture, poured the whole thing over the graham crackers, and got soggy crackers. I baked as directed, but the mixture didn't stick to the crackers like the first batch. The almonds and sesame seeds kept falling off with every bite. So I scraped the almonds off the crackers and used them as a waffle topping (which, by the way was delicious!) Even with all my "issues" ... we loved 'em. The only thing missing, was a drizzle of chocolate over the top. Thanks Barb :) I made this for the "Cooking with an Asian Accent" event - March 2009.
