I dedicated my 100th post on LLB to my Meme by baking her Pink Lemonade Pie. Now I dedicate my 200th post to her!
I loved helping Meme in the kitchen growing up. She taught me lots about baking, including taste testing, you know, for quality control purposes 😉
I was lucky enough to grow up in a time, place and family that had Meme’s and Papa’s instead of nannies and babysitters. Whenever Mom was working my brother and I would go spend the afternoons after school with my Meme. We were her only two grandchildren and she loved spoiling us. She would always say we weren’t spoiled, we were “well-loved” and I couldn’t agree more!
We were spoiled with loving gestures, such as making two pies so that my brother and I could each have our favorite, or making pink and chocolate graham cracker cookie sandwiches because I wanted pink and my brother wanted chocolate! And these cookie sandwiches are what I am sharing with you all today.
While it may be one of the simplest recipes I post on the LLB, it is also one that is filled with the most memories!
Ingredients (makes 26 cookie sandwiches)
- 9 cups powdered sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tbsp cocoa
- 2-3 drops red food coloring
- 1 box graham crackers
Start by combining the powdered sugar and milk until no lumps exist. Separate the icing into three bowls. In one bowl add the cocoa and in another add the food coloring.
Then sandwich another graham cracker on top.
Chocolate for my brother…
