Club Cracker No Bake Cookie Bars


Another great recipe for no bake cookies made from two kinds of crackers - club crackers and crushed graham crackers.

There are a lot of variations of this delicious no bake cookie recipe but this is my favorite.

Club crackers are made by Keebler and are rich and buttery crackers with a flaky texture that seem to just melt in your mouth.

Today's graham crackers are much sweeter than the original versions - thanks to the additions of cinnamon, honey and/or chocolate flavors or coatings.

They were initially created by mixing finely ground unbleached wheat flour with coarsely ground wheat bran and wheat germ.

The recipe is written in my grandmother's handwriting on a speckled 3x5 index card that recently found its way to me.

It comes from my 92-year-old grandmother by way of her old high school friend, Edith.
