Homemade Graham Crackers

I love graham crackers, but since I stopped buying stuff with high fruictous corn syrup, i stopped buying graham crackers. They are my favorite snack and I was very sad about that.
I came across a recipe on Pinterest, and modify it. These are made with brown sugar and honey.
They turned out soooooo tasty. The next time I make this I will roll of the dough thinner to feel more like the store bought ones.

Graham Crackers

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teasspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, cold and cubed
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry indregients,
Then add the cubed butter and use a pastry blender (or fork) and blend the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal.

Then add the honey, water and vanilla and mix until incorperated.

Remove the dough and shape it into a large ball.

On a floured surface, roll out the dough like you would cookie dough, roll out until it's less then 1/4 inch thick.

Cut out into crackers or cut out into shapes. Re-combine the scraps and roll out, cut out, repeat until all the dough is used up.
You can use a pizza cutter to make straight lines and a pointed skewer tto poke holes into the crackers.
Place the crackers on a lined (baking mat or parchment paper) cookie sheet and bake for 15 mintues.
To achieve the crispy cracker crunch, let cool completely.

These are super easy to make and super tasty. Enjoy!
