Think graham cracker crumbs are only for pie crusts??

Not so! Today is my co-worker’s birthday – he happens to be a fan of my goodies  and his VERY favorite are Butterscotch Graham cookies. I’m also heading out on a boat for the weekend, and need to bring along some goodies that won’t completely wilt in the sun. What perfect reasons to whip up a batch. The original recipe came from Nestle, but I tweak it just a bit.

Chewy Butterscotch Graham Cookies

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

¾ cup all purpose flour

¾ cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

a scant ¾ cup sugar, maybe closer to ½ cup

¾ cup packed brown sugar

1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened

½ cup egg substitute

1 tsp vanilla

1 package (11 oz) butterscotch chips


Preheat oven to 350.


In small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, flours, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. In larger bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg substitute and vanilla. Stir in chips.


Drop in rounded tablespoons on ungreased cookie sheet, bake for 9 – 11 minutes. Remove and cool on sheets 2  – 3 minutes before removing to racks.

Because these aren’t chocolate, they will do really well on the boat. But for my friend, he gets special packaging. For anyone who hasn’t already discovered it, is FABulous!
