Ingredients

Graham Crackers

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 12 tablespoons water

Instructions

Graham Crackers

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together flours, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda. Mix on low speed to combine.
  2. Add cold cubed butter and mix on medium speed until a course crumb is formed
  3. In a small bowl, mix together honey, water, and vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  4. Add the honey mixture to the flour mixture until a dough forms and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  5. Between two pieces of parchment paper, roll out dough and cut out into shapes.
  6. Place the shapes on a Silpat lined baking sheet, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. I like to put my cut out dough into the freezer to chill while the oven is preheating because I think it helps them retain their shape when baking.
  8. When oven reaches 350 degrees, bake for 15 minutes. Cool on a cooling rack completely before icing.

Icing

  1. Measure out powdered sugar and whisk in 1 tablespoon of water. If icing is too thick add a tiny bit more water until the consistency is good for icing. It should be similar to the consistency of toothpaste.
