I'm not sure were these first came about. Growing up it was always a favorite treat for my sister and me. Then I started making them for my gang. We just call them Gram Cracker Cookies.
Here is what you will need.
2 Cups powder sugar
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 box gram crackersGet yourself a great little bowl, measure out the powdered sugar then beat in remaining ingredients. You are looking for a consistency of honey. Any thinner and the gram crackers will not hold together. Keep your powder sugar handy and add in teaspoon at a time till you reach the desired consistency. Tonight we added a bit of food coloring to make a pretty lavender icing.
I like to break my gram crackers in half before icing. It helps speed up the process. Spoon just about 1 Tablespoon onto a gram cracker and top with another to make a cookie. Place on a wire rack and let set for about an hour. Store in Ziploc bag for up to 5 days.
This is also a great icing for any Angel Food cake. Another one of our family favorites!
