weekend baking :: graham crackers
so far this weekend it has snowed about 8 inches, my husband broke a bone in his hand and the a baby's barfed on me twice. so, naturally we made graham crackers.
pure denial of the ugliness of the situation.
we got this recipe from my son's teacher. i think might have mentioned before that he goes to a Waldorf school. we love it. we also love these crackers. try 'em! they taste like the "real" thing and there's not a speck of graham flour in them. . . whatever that is.
we love these little buggers. (did i say that already? it's been a long day . . . or two.) we eat 'em with a multitude of toppings. jam, peanut butter, cream cheese, butter and honey. plain, but only if they are crispy. and with a glass of milk, of course. soy for me and the boy. dairy for the hubby. we're a multi-milk family.
as ever, my munchkin was in the kitchen with me. he loves to roll and cut the dough. although he likes the cutting part a lot, so he ends up with teeny tiny crackers. but, as usual, i try to just let him do his thing.
1/3 c. oil
1/3 c. honey
2 tbs. molasses
1/4 - 1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 - 3 c. ww flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
oil or butter for greasing
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
2. Mix oil, honey, molasses, 1/4 cup of the milk and vanilla together in a small bowl.
3. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix. If mixture is too dry
add the remaining 1/4 cup of milk until it's wet enough to form a ball.
5. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to about 1/4" thick. You can experiment with thickness--some people like a soft cracker, others like 'em thin and crisp.
6. Cut into squares and prick with a fork.
Bake for 10-12 min.
