Guess what day it is? Yep, Cookie of the Month Day! This month’s ingredient is Chocolate Chip because Friday, May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Day this year. I made a special recipe with both dark and white chocolate chips as well as graham cracker crumbs. They are very thin and crispy with melty chips all around. At the bottom you will find all the cookie recipes from all the participants and you will also be able to find many of them over at Yum Goggle where we have accumulated 2000 recipes to date with nearly 100 new submissions per day!
I took this picture Sunday morning of the beautiful iris out by our mailbox – aren’t they pretty?
Back in the 80’s, I had a box of Keebler Graham Crackers that had recipes on the back one of which was Graham Cracker Cookies. I lost it over the years but I loved ‘em and here’s my best rendition with the addition of white chocolate chips. Check out my really cool Keebler Cookie Jar!
Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 ¼ Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs, finely processed
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 Cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
¾ Cups Brown Sugar
¾ Cups White Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Large Eggs
1 ½ Cups semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 ½ Cups White Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 375F.
Measure flour, graham cracker crumbs and baking soda into a bowl. Mix together.
Into a large mixing bowl cream both sugars and butter until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing well.
Mix in vanilla and salt.
Stir in both kinds of chocolate chips.
Using a cookie scoop or Tablespoon, drop dough onto parchment paper or greased baking sheets.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until brown around the edges, remembering cookies cook a bit more after taking out of oven.
Allow to cool about 5 minutes then move to wire cooling rack.
Makes exactly 5 dozen cookies.
They are salty and sweet at the same time tasting like graham crackers and chocolate without the marshmallow. These cookies are also very crispy – just like my daughter prefers!

That cookie jar brought back a funny memory. Keebler was based in Cincinnati in the 1970s and a friend of my husband who worked there would give him what he called “leftover” supplies that he claimed were being thrown out. I started getting doubtful when my husband brought home unopened sacks of flour, sugar, etc., but when he brought home a cookie jar like this, I knew his friend wasn’t picking up leftovers. Not only did he pilfer all the supplies for the cookies but swiped the jar to put them in. I made my husband take the jar back and never accepted supplies again. Wish I had the jar, though.
The cookies sound delicious.
Oh my! That is a funny story – and could have ended up not being so funny but you did the right thing…..Thank you!
Awesome cookies, I could eat a few of those right now with my coffee!! Love the bearded iris too, great shot! 🙂
Thank you so much – The iris photo has been going wild on my community FB page!

Thank you my friend!

Oh my goodness…that cookie jar is adorable! Love these cookies, too. 🙂 Pinned and sharing!
Oh Wow! I am in LOVE with the cookie jar! I have been searching for one for quite a while! My daddy use to drive a truck for Keebler and he would bring home tons of cookies and crackers from damaged boxes! The goodies inside were never damaged and always gobbled up! My favorite was the soft batch cookies! I would warm them in the microwave and eat them all melty! Delicious!
That’s funny – those are my daughter’s favorite as well – and she likes them warmed up too!: )
Yum Kelli! These looks awesome! I love the addition of graham. Definitely going to have to give these a try! 🙂
Thank you! They are delicious!
Cool cookie jar, Kelli. I hate it when I misplace a recipe but there is always google! 🙂 This is a genius idea to add the graham cracker crumbs/flour……Can’t beat a good choco chip cookie.
My hubby would LOVE these. Graham cracker & chocolate is one of his absolute favorite combos. I’m definitely going to have to make these!
Thank you,I will try to do it.
I never tired of cookies, These cookies looks awesome!
