Homemade Graham Crackers 

Recently I have been obsessed with the King Arthur Flour website and all the recipes on there! There’s soooo many I want to try. Two that I have recently  tried and loved are this chocolate cake and this old-fashioned apple cake. Definitely recommend.

I found this graham cracker recipe on there and knew I had to try it! I guess it’s the nostalgia kicking in.(I say as if I’ve lived many years) But there’s something about the idea of making typically store-bought food yourself!

Indulge your kid side with this fun snacks! 🙂

Directions

  • Combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg with the oil, honey, and 2 tablespoons milk.
  • Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until you have a fairly stiff dough, adding additional milk if necessary.
  • Wrap the dough and chill it until firm, about 1 hour
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead gently until it holds together.
  • Roll the dough out about 1/16″ thick; make sure the rolling surface is well-floured, or you’ll have trouble transferring the crackers to the baking sheet
  • Cut the dough into 3″ squares, or cut out with a cookie cutter.
  • Place them on baking sheets.
  • Prick each square several times with a fork, and place them on the prepared pans.
  • Brush the tops with milk, and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
  • Bake the crackers for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they’re lightly browned.
