It’s a sweet treat day. It’s a good thing because this is what we’ve been looking at for what seems like an eternity.
Please come back sun!!
I only know this ‘cookie’ by the name of the person who first made them and kindly shared the recipe with my family. Nyda Kolp introduced us and it’s been on our holiday cookie list ever since. It doesn’t seem like much but it is maddeningly addictive. My sister kindly refers to it as some sort of holiday illegal substance. It’s that good.
The butter and sugar are boiled together to make a very simple caramelly syrup. Make sure to do to the melting and boiling slowly over medium heat while stirring almost constantly. If you don’t, strange things happen. I know from experience.
The simple caramel is then poured over single graham crackers and topped with sliver almonds. I always add lots of almonds. Then, while it’s in the oven, the caramel sauce boils and cooks and becomes so delicious.
After removing them from the oven, the cookies need a little time to cool and firm up. Once they are cooled, the tray can be broken up into single graham crackers again.
They taste like a cracker drunk with butter and sugar. It’s heavenly.
I’ve already packaged some up to share because I know that if they are left unattended, they will disappear.
