Homemade Graham Crackers

I've tried making graham crackers before, but didn't feel they turned out very successfully, so it didn't become a regular thing. However, the recipe that I tried this time was wonderful and super easy. I even used my food processor. We may just make graham crackers again sometime in the near future!

Graham Crackers

1 1/2 cups white flour
1 cup wheat flour
1 tablespoon wheat germ, optional
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup (one cube) butter, chilled and cut into pieces
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine all the dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse briefly. Add the butter and mix until crumbly. Then add the honey, water and vanilla and blend well. Place dough between wax paper and roll to 1/4" thickness. Cut with desired cookie cutters (or a regular knife). Bake at 350° for about 15 minutes (depending upon size). Cool.

  1. I once made homemade graham crackers and they were delicious, but when I made them they weren't this easy, so I never made them again. Maybe it's time to try again!
