Homemade Graham Crackers {recipe}

homemade graham crackersI’m always trying to find crackers that don’t have all the ‘junk’ in them, but of course the price is double from those that do. So I thought I would try to make my own and found this recipe.

Not only is it a lot cheaper than store-bought, you can also change the sweetness, adding more or less, to suit your own taste preference.

 

Graham Crackers

2 1/2 cups graham flour (you can find this in the supermarket by the other wheat flours)
1 cup whole wheat flour (or unbleached all purpose for a lighter cracker)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon (extra for sprinkling)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup whole cane sugar (brown sugar if you must) (extra for sprinkling)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup water

Method of Preparation

1. Mix graham flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a good size bowl. Set aside.

2. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.

3. Add in honey and vanilla to butter and sugar.

4. Alternating water and flour, add to creamed mixture, beating well each time.

5. Cover dough and let set for 30 minutes.

6. Divide the dough in half and place onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.

7. Using a rolling pin, roll the mixture onto the cookie sheet until about 1/4 inch high.

8. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the top and lightly press into the dough.

9. Cut lines in the dough to form rectangles or squares.

10. Bake at 325 for 25 minutes or until brown.

You can also taste the dough before rolling it out to test for desired sweetness. If you need it sweeter, just add equal amounts of honey and whole cane sugar.
