Homemade Graham Crackers:

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour

1/2 cup light rye flour (rye flour can be found in health food stores)

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into pea-size bits

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoon molasses

1/4 cup cold water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Graham Crackers: In a food processor or the bowl of an electric mixer, mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the cold butter and mix or process until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the honey, molasses, water, and vanilla. Mix until the dough comes together in a ball.

 

Between 2 sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap, roll the dough 1/2-inch thick. Chill for 1 hour, until firm. Set a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Lightly flour the dough and roll 1/8-inch thick. With a sharp knife or cookie cutter, cut into 2-inch squares. Arrange the crackers on nonstick or parchment lined cookie sheets. With a fork, ***** several holes in each cracker. Bake for 15 minutes, until lightly browned at the edges. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan.

 

Yield: 48 crackers

The three recipes that are first are very similar to a recipe my grandmother used to make that was easy and turned out wonderful. Unfortunately, it has been so many years since I made them that I don't remember how many they actually made. I thought that if you make any of these, you could let us know. I will try the cinnamon ones and see. I also think that we could use Splenda for part of the sugar and the recipes actually called for 'graham' flour OR whole wheat but I remember my grandma used whole grain wheat flour. If I can find graham flour, I will use that but the whole grain probably serves the same purpose.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

-------- ------------ --------------------------------

1 1/2 cups flour, all-purpose

1 cups flour, whole-grain wheat

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cups cocoa

3/4 cups butter

1/3 cups granulated sugar

1/3 cups brown sugar

3 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 large egg

For the sugar topping:

2 tablespoons butter -- melted

1/4 cup granulated sugar

 

1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.

 

2. With the paddle attachment of your electric mixer, beat the cold butter

until it is soft. Add the sugars and continue beating. Then add the honey,

extract and egg and beat until combined.

 

3. Add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl and beat until a fairly firm

dough is made. Wrap the dough in plastic and place it in the refrigerator

to chill.

 

4. When the dough is firm enough to roll, lightly dust a countertop and a

rolling pin and roll the dough to a scant 1/4-inch thick. Preheat the oven

to 350 degrees.

 

5. Use a ruler to mark 3-inch squares. Cut into squares with a sharp knife

using the ruler as a straightedge. Use a thin metal spatula to scrape the

crackers from the counter. Place them on a well-greased baking sheet with

a margin of space to allow for spreading. Use a fork to pierce the

crackers as shown.

 

6. For the topping, brush the tops of the crackers with melted butter.

Sprinkle the sugar over the buttered tops.

 

7. Bake the crackers for ten minutes or until the edges just start to

brown. Remove them to a wire rack to cool.

Serving Ideas : Baker's note: Graham flour is a whole wheat flour with lots of fiber from the wheat hull left in. You can substitute your favorite whole wheat flour if you prefer. Different wheat flours will lend a little different texture to the crackers.

 

NOTES : If you would like to serve something sweeter, sandwich two

of these crackers with frosting.
