Cookie COUNTDOWN! Cookie #1

Welcome to our 
We're gearing up for a FUN week of baking and 
sharing.  If YOU have recipes to share, PLEASE do!
Leave a comment with your recipe, or send an email
to us at


First the cookie my kids are anxiously waiting for.
It's one my mom used to make for Christmas and was
definitely MY favorite growing up. 
I asked her where she got
the recipe and she thinks she
clipped it out of the newspaper 
back in the 70's.  
I think that's the equivalent of finding a recipe on a blog and 
pinning it to Pinterest.

Anyhoo!  She never had a name for them.  They were the 
no-bake cookies.  So, my sister and I decided, a few years ago,
to deem them with a name.  We call them...

"Grammy Grahams"

Would they win a grammy?  Sure, if cookies could, they would 
definitely be a top runner!  But no, we use the word to lovingly 
describe my mom, who is Grandma to these other two lovely 
ladies posing with me in these pics.

And "Grahams" because the basic yumminess has to do with 
graham cracker crumbs!

BTW...these pics were from a photo shoot last 
year as the recipe was featured in the Nov/Dec issue 
of the Mark Lipinski's Christmas 365 magazine.

NOW...they are the feature cookie in OUR 
Dream. Laugh. Create. eMagazine!  
To get the recipe....
Simply click on Issue 3 over there 
on the right sidebar.
The recipe is on page 27!

And enjoy some fun Holiday crafts as well!

sharing tomorrow!  I'm off to buy some mini-marshmallows....

  3. My mother-in-law used to make ones something like this. They had glace cherries and dates in them, and no eggs. They were formed into logs without baking I think and sliced when being eaten. She called them "Mom's Christmas Turds". :)
