Home Made Graham Cracker Recipe

14 years ago

I mentioned making your own graham crackers on the Shrinkage post. Here's a recipe I have for the "plain" ones. I wonder if you could make chocolate graham crackers merely by adding 1/2 cup cocoa to the recipe?

Honey-Graham Crackers

An old Family Circle or WomenÂs Day recipe from the 1970Âs. Really good, even when too thick. Can use in a cookie press. Might work with a cookie roller. Try sprinkling with cinnamon sugar before baking. Makes 60 1 1/2" by 3" crackers.

2 C. all-purpose flour

1 C. whole-wheat flour

1/3 C. packed brown sugar

1/2C. shortening, at room temperature

1/4 C. honey

3 Tbsp. cold water

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

In medium bowl stir all ingredients about 3 minutes to blend well. Divide in half. Place half the dough on ungreased 17x14" baking sheet. Flatten into 4 or 5" square. Roll out on baking sheet to 12x10" rectangle, dusting dough lightly with flour to keep from sticking to rolling pin. With knife, score 2" squares, leaving squares in place. Prick all over with fork. Bake in middle of preheated 425º oven 8-10 minutes or till browned. Remove from oven. Cut apart while hot. Let cool on baking sheet, they crisp as they cool. Repeat with remaining dough.
