Throwback Snack! Graham Cracker/Frosting Sandwich Cookies, "Redneck Oreos"

Happy Sunday everyone! It's been a super day here on "Patch-A-Heaven!" We haven't lost anymore lambs and they are all eating well. We had a great day at church and are home relaxing. My daughter asked me to make one of her favorite treats and it's one that brings back sweet memories! Did anyone else's mom make these when you were a kid? My mom sure did! They are a fast and simple treat that I thought I'd share today. Kind of like a "Redneck Oreo!"

If this is not a nostalgic snack from your childhood and you want to try them, this is what we do:

You need:
Box of Graham Crackers
Your favorite frosting, the recipe I use is below. I was given this recipe by my good friend Natalie who said it was the same recipe as the "big sugar cookies" don't know who originally came up with this recipe, but I like it.

 Frosting Recipe:
1/2 Cup Butter, softened
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons Milk
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
And food coloring if you so desire. (I let the 5 year old choose, so we got a pretty pink!)

Directions: Beat softened butter in mixer until smooth , then add the other ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy.
Then smear a gob over a graham cracker and top with another cracker and wa-la, instant sweetness!
