Crisp Graham Cookies

Today I baked Crisp Graham Cookies. They're special because they have have peanut butter, M&M's and graham cracker crumbs in them. I first started baking these cookies in 1997-so yes, I have been making them for 15 years. They are that good. When my brother and I were teenagers, my Grandma had a subscription to Taste of Home magazine.  Taste of Home is a cooking magazine and we would pore over the photos of food and get hungrier by the minute.  I found the recipe for Crisp Graham Cookies and on a Spring day in High School, I was getting ready for a road trip and decided to make these cookies for the trip.  Everyone knows you should brings tons of snacks and munchies for a car trip.  It seems to make the miles go faster.  The cookies were a big hit, and when I returned home the bag was empty.  
Like any good recipe, you hold onto it forever and share it with others so they can enjoy it too.
