Graham Cracker Cookie Bars

"I got this recipe off of the back of a graham cracker box, and I could not believe how yummy they were! I have not made them with plain graham crackers, so I just used my own best judgement in estimating the additions of granulated sugar and cinnamon to compensate."

    I have been looking for a quick cookie bar using graham cracker crumbs and this was better than I hoped for! I just used the plain graham cracker crumbs I had on hand and added 1/2 cup chopped pecan pieces. I omitted the milk because I was looking for a crunchy texture and thought the milk might make them soft. Lastly - I pressed the dough into a 9x13 inch cookie pan and baked them at 325 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Excellent recipe! Thanks so much!

    I was looking for a recipe to use up my Graham crackers and I found this gem. Easy to make and they taste and look fantastic. I drizzled them with melted chocolate chips. Sorry i didn't take a picture. they disappeared too fast. I'll be making these again. Thanks for posting.

    How can something so good be so easy!! It satisfies the dessert craving without being overly sweet. I made it exactly as written however I ran out of graham wafer crumbs so I had to use 1 c. of Oreo chocolate crumbs. I added the chopped pecans as suggested by a reviewer then baked them in a 9x9" pan. They turned out perfect & were a huge hit in our house. Half the pan was gone in no time. Thank you for the recipe. I think it will be a frequent 'go to dessert recipe'.
