Tele-Graham Crackers

Serious Eats

Ready in: 60 minutes
Servings: 12
Vegetarian

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • 6 to 8 cups confectioners' sugar
    Baking
  • 6 graham crackers
    Sweet Snacks
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk or cream
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    Baking

Steps

  • Break each graham cracker in half so that you have two square pieces. Set to the side.
  • Prepare the frosting filling. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter until very smooth, about 3 minutes on high speed. Reduce speed to low and add about 3 cups of confectioners' sugar. Continue beating on low speed until incorporated.
  • Pause to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add vanilla.
  • Add remaining confectioners' sugar, bit by bit, until desired spreading consistency has been reached. If the frosting gets too thick, stir in some milk or cream to thin it.
  • Spread your filling on one side of each pair and adhere the second half on top to form a little sandwich.
  • Using your writing icing, write your message on the top of the cookie.
  • Let dry; once the icing is set, wrap in waxed paper and place in small boxes (I find that 3 1/2-inch square jewelry boxes work nicely; they’re available at packaging supply stores). Use crinkled paper to fill the top and bottom of the boxes, and all of those in a padded mailer or box. These confections will fare well for 3 to 4 days, so choose your method of shipping accordingly.
