Since its the time of year for making memories with gingerbread houses, I’m sharing an excellent recipe for homemade graham crackers. This dough is so versatile and easy to shape into walls and roof pieces to make the perfect gingerbread house of any size. Merry Christmas!
So, what did I do with those soft, sweet,
I made s’mores of course!
I couldn’t just make s’mores with store-bought graham crackers.
I found an easy recipe for homemade graham crackers
on Scharffen Berger’s website. They also list dozens of gourmet
(and not just sweets)
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line cookie sheets with parchment
Combine the sugar, butter and egg in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth and creamy. Stir in the honey and add the optional drop of edible cinnamon essential oil.
Stir together the graham or whole wheat flour, unbleached white flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add to the butter mixture in two parts.
Dust a surface with the graham or whole wheat flour. Form the dough into a ball and roll out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut the dough into 2 dozen crackers or cracker size and shape of your choosing. Prick each cracker with the tines of a fork.
Move to the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes or until a deep golden brown.
Cool on a rack.
The recipe is very simple and tastes exactly
as I imagined a REAL graham cracker would taste.
The dough is very easy to roll, cut, and transfer to the pan.
I love that it holds whatever design
that is poked into the top of the cracker before baking.
We had fun decorating the tops with names, initials, and shapes.
And, in case you’re wondering…
the homemade marshmallows are so so so good in a s’more.
Melty, toasty, gooey, and sweet. Yum!
And throw it under the broiler for a few seconds…
Oh yes, my friends…that’s a toasted, homemade marshmallow
on a homemade graham cracker.
Does it get any better?
Smoosh it all together and voila!
