Happy December! I can’t believe how quickly this year and flown by and I know the next four weeks are going to be gone in a blink. I’m excited to share this recipe for graham crackers as part of December’s Fill the Cookie Jar group. They were so easy to make and my kids LOVE them! They have asked to have them in their lunch and snacks after school. They’re a winner and I’ll be making them often. If you have kids or grandkids, you’ll need to try this recipe.
If you’re not familiar with the Fill the Cookie Jar group, we’re a bunch of bloggers who get together on the first Thursday of each month and share a recipe that can fill your cookie jar. I mean who doesn’t love cookies and sweets!?!
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups AP flour
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 stick unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water (may need more to help combine the dough)
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together the flours, sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add in the cold butter and mix until you get something that looks like coarse meal. Add in the honey, water and vanilla and pulse until a dough forms. I had to add a couple more tablespoons of water for my dough to come together.
Turn the dough out onto a piece of wax or parchment paper. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into shapes using cookie cutters. I used mini cutters that are from Pampered Chef. Place the crackers onto the lined baking sheets and bake for 13 to 15 minutes. The longer you bake them, the crisper they get.
