10 Easy Desserts You Can Make with Graham Crackers
The great graham cracker needs a trophy for versatility!
One of the most versatile ingredients out there is probably already on your kitchen counter or in your cabinet of pantry staples: graham crackers! Made from a simple combination of whole wheat flour, wheat germ, and dark brown sugar, the snappy, tasty graham cracker can be used to make equally simple desserts: freezer cakes, pies, cheesecakes, and parfaits. Whether used whole or crushed, the options are endless.
Here are some of our favorite recipes!
Tip: if you want to save on prep time in the kitchen, you may purchase crushed graham crackers in any major supermarket. Check the aisle where they hold the crackers. Packs of crushed graham crackers should be available for easy pie crust-making.
