Ice Box Cookies

These delicious cookies are in memory of my Mother, Hazel Perkins. She use to make these every year at Christmas. It is an old recipe. I don't know where she got it. All I know is as kids & adults we loved them and looked forward to them every year. Luckly I got the recipe from her, just 1 year before she passed away. I am going to make them for my children this year and surprise them. They haven't had any in 18 yrs. PS, the longer these cookies set the better they are. The graham crackers get soft. Hope you will try them.
