French Christmas Cookies
----------------------------------------------------
40 graham cracker singles (2 packs)
2 - 6oz pkgs mini chocolate chips
2 cups finely chopped nuts (walnuts or almonds)
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter, softened to room temp
1 cup 1/2&1/2 (or use 1/2 cup each milk and cream)
*frosting* (see below)
------------------------------------------------
1. Put the grahams in your processor and process in short *bursts* until they are crushed similar to the testure of med-fine chopped nuts.Alternately, put them into a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. (I prefer the latter, just for the texture) Pour into a bowl.
2. Cream butter and sugar.

3. Add to crumbs and mix (You can use a mixer on low speed)

4. Add cream, nuts and chips and mix

5. Fill baking mini-cups 2/3 full

6. Bake on a cookie sheet at 375* for 10-12 minutes...just until set--do NOT overbake.
Frosting:
Melt 1 pkg each chocolate and butterscotch chips with 1-2 Tbsp peanut butter. Use to *frost* cookie
