These graham crackers were so fun to make! They taste like graham crackers, but they have the consistency of a cookie. They are great for the kids’ lunches, or just for a snack to have around the house.
- 1/2 C. Shortening
- 3/4 C. Packed brown sugar
- 1 Tsp. Madagascar Bourbon vanilla extract
- 2 T. Honey
- 2 C. Whole wheat flour
- 1 C. All-purpose flour
- 1 Tsp. Baking powder
- 1/2 Tsp. Baking soda
- 1/4 Tsp. Salt
- 1/2 C. Milk
- In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening and brown sugar. Add the vanilla and honey.
- Combine both types of flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the milk.
- Cover and chill dough until firm. I chilled mine for about two hours.
Note: The dough looks really dry and flaky when it’s first refrigerated, but it rolls out just fine after it’s chilled.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into rectangles. (As you can tell from the picture, we didn’t make rectangles. My kiddos begged me to do shapes, and they were right – shapes are much more fun!)
- Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, edges will be golden brown.
These are really yummy! We tried them with peanut butter, honey, Nutella, and chocolate peanut butter. I liked the Nutella and the peanut butter, and Chad liked the honey.
