Graham Cracker Cookies

These graham cracker cookie bars are one of the first desserts Dusty and I made together when we first started dating about 4 years ago. I'm actually surprised that I haven't posted this recipe before because it's one of my favorite treats to make and eat! This dessert is great for beginnners, like I was because it is no-bake and super simple. Dusty and I love this dessert so much and it is perfect for hot summer days!

Here is what you are going to need:
-1 box of Honey Graham Crackers
-1-1/2 sticks of Butter
-1 cup Sugar
-1 Egg
-1/2 cup Milk
-1 cup chopped Walnuts or Pecans
-1 cup shredded Coconut

Topping:
-2 cups Powdered Sugar
-1 tsp Vanilla
-1/2 stick Butter
-3 tbsp Milk

Line a 9x13 casserole dish with graham crackers. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add sugar. Beat the egg and milk together and add to butter/sugar mixture. Bring to a boil and stir constantly to incorporate. Remove from heat and add nuts, coconut and 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs. Pour the mixture over the graham crackers in the pan and spread evenly. Cover the gooey mixture with another layer of graham crackers.

Topping: Add all ingredients together in a bowl and spread over top layer of crackers.

Chill the dish of cookies in the freezer and then cut into squares. Enjoy!
