As discussed here before, Margaret’s Hermits are pretty sinful. Not for those on a diet… My lovely (and very knowleagable) work colleage Renee made some of these despite not having baked for about 20 years since Home Economics at school. As we are not in the vacinity of Graham Crackers, Ms Adoree used crushed up digestive biscuits. This will be suggested in the book. As I am planning a trip to Austin soon (top secret) I will bring back some Graham Crackers and try both versions side by side and have a taste test.
I do love it when test cooks send a photo of their finished items and when I get around to jazzing up the website I’ll have a page for these. Renee’s pic of her Hermits was utterly charming and she was very pleased with the results saying, “I may even attempt the recipe again and perhaps feel confident enough to let others try my cooking!’
I say YES my dear, and bring them into the office!
