Adam's Dirt Cookies

Adam's Dirt Cookies


"Why smash perfectly good cookies just to make another batch of cookies? 'Cause they're YUMMY! Made with crushed sandwich cookies, the small pieces of broken cookie dust make the dough speckled - I've been told they look like they're made with dirt!"

Our baking group made these cookies last week and we fell in love with them. They were easy to make and fun to see when they were done. We used them to give to the staff and they just swooned ...

These cookies were easy enough to make. They tasted okay, but my husband wouldn't touch them because of how they looked. I guess looks do count!

OPPPS, i made a mistake when I made these cookies. I used chocolate graham cracker crumbs. They worked like a charm. Great recipe. Maybe the next time I will get it right!! Thanks Adam
