First things first: This recipe comes courtesy of one of my grandmother’s older sisters, so a great aunt. I don’t remember what she looked like, but I do recall seeing her at the occasional wedding and/or funeral.
A caveat before we get started: I like graham crackers. I like graham cracker crust. I like graham cracker cake. I like these bars well enough, but they could use some jazzing up.
Here’s what you’ll need:
16 Graham Crackers, rolled into crumbs
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs, beaten
1 Cup Nuts, chopped
½ tsp. Vanilla
Mix all ingredients together and press into a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for 11-15 minutes. Cut into bars when cool.
These have a nice, chewy texture and a pretty good flavor—but if I ever make these again, you can bet your sweet ass I’m adding chocolate chips.
