homemade vanilla cinnamon grahams

graham crackers. Some people love em some people hate em, some people wonder why they’re called crackers-when they clearly are more like cookies. Hmmm. I wonder that…animal crackers perplex me, too. Hmmm. So, I had some graham flour (coarse whole wheat flour) and, with a birthday coming up…I wanted to make something not so sweet.

By the way, graham flour is named after Sylvester Graham, a pioneer in the health food movement. The flour was invented by him in 1829 and was used in many recipes at his chain of health food retreats. Just a little tidbit for y’all.

this recipe came from “The Fannie Farmer Baking Book” I however, added my own touches… vanilla and extra cinnamon sugar on top.

To Make:

4 tbs softened butter, mix with 1 egg, 6 tbs sugar, and 4 tbs honey.and 1 tsp vanilla. Dissolve 1/2 tsp baking soda in 1 tsp water and add to the butter mixture. Mix in 3/4 tsp salt, 3/4 all purpose flour and 1 1⁄2c graham flour. It will form a nice dough. Now, roll out 1⁄8″ thick, and cut into 2″ squares. Pierce with a fork several times, and make an indentation in the center,with a knife to score it. The best way to transfer to a baking sheet is to use a spatula. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture then Bake at 350°F for 8 min, then flip them over and bake 6 more minutes.

I’m thinking these are going to make the BEST s’mores EVER!
