I’ve been wanting to do a homemade graham crackers recipe for quite a while but I wasn’t happy with any that I found. I finally made this one the other day because I really needed some graham cracker crumbs for yet another recipe I want to try! Hubby liked these! I wasn’t too impressed with how long it takes to make the crackers, a few too many steps for me, but I enjoyed making the crumbles that I will be able to use for crusts.
Homemade Graham Crackers
What you need:
- 1 1/2 c. flour
- 1 1/2 c. wheat flour
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1 t. cinnamon (or less)
- 1 c. butter, softened
- 3/4 c. brown sugar, sucanat, or turbinado
- 2 T. honey
Mix together the honey, sugar, salt, and butter.
Add in the rest of the ingredients. Add the flours 1/2 c. at a time so it works itself in well.
Place the dough in between wax paper or parchment paper and roll out.
Cut into squares or any shape you’d like. Place the crackers in the freezer for about 15 – 20 minutes to hard up.
Take the crackers out of the freezer and place on a greased cookie sheet. Poke with fork tines. Bake at 350F for about 4-5 minutes, flip over carefully with a spatula and bake another 3-4 minutes. Watch carefully so you don’t burn.
I also made a batch of graham cracker crumbs to put in the freezer for crusts. Instead of all the steps above to make the squares, just place the dough in an oven safe pan and bake at 350F for about 8 minutes. Turn the crumbs over every couple minutes so they get well done.
Enjoy as you would store bought graham crackers. I’m guessing these would make a killer s’more!
