Luckily, homemade Graham Crackers will not cause such horrible events to occur. In fact, they do the exact opposite! Everyone in my family adores these crackers and they are the perfect wholesome treat for my son.
Slightly sweet and rich with warm spices, these crackers are a great snack and really fun to make!
The dough is similar to a sugar cookie in that you chill the dough in a flat disc. Then you cut out the squares with a pizza cutter or sharp knife and create the signature marks by pricking the dough with a fork several times. Bake for 10 minutes and you are done! Eat the crackers as they are or smeared with peanut or almond butter. You can even use them to make a seriously delicious pie or cheesecake crust!
Homemade Graham Crackers
Servings: Makes 32 Crackers
- 1-1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
- 1-1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) Salted Butter, room temperature
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/3 cup Honey
- 2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 cup Milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Lightly flour your countertop. Roll out one disc of dough into a rectangle to about 1/8 inch thick. Using a pizza cutter, make 16 smaller rectangles (about 2 inches by 3 inches). Place the small rectangles on the baking sheet about 1/4 inch apart and prick them with a fork six times. Repeat with the other disc of dough.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges become barely golden brown. Place the baking sheets on a cooling rack for 10 minutes, not disturbing the crackers. Transfer the Graham Crackers to the wire cooling wrack until completely cooled. Store in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
