I live in an area that is pretty backwards. Most in my area are clueless how toxic GMO foods are. If I want something organic I have to make it myself , the nearest store that would carry things like organic graham crackers is about 50 miles away. I seen a friend post an awesome recipe that required graham crackers. I will post the recipe on here if it works out.

I did not have graham flour so I used regular flour even though the recipe called for graham flour. The did not taste too bad. I over cooked the ones in the picture a little too much. The recipe said to cook them 15 to 18 minutes. I should have cooked them for 15 minutes.

10 Table spoons of butter.

1/3 cup of brown sugar.

1/3 cup of honey.

1 Large egg

1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract.

2 cups of graham flour, you can use unbleached if you do not have graham flour.

¾ cup of unbleached flour.

¼ cup of cornstarch or arrow root flour

¾ Teaspoon of baking soda.

½ Teaspoon of salt.

Mix the butter and brown sugar together until creamy. Then add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix well.

Mix the 2 cups of flour saving the ¾ cups of flour for after you have mixed the 2 cups of flour and other dry ingredients. Then as you mix it add the ¾ cups of flour until it can form a ball that is not sticky to the touch. You may not need all the extra flour I had some left over.

Roll dough to 1/8 inch thick. You can get rolling pin rings that will help to get the correct thickness but I cannot afford them. Use a cookie cutter to cut them to desired size. I had to use a canning jar lid but it worked fine. Make sure you poke holes in them. I used a fork. This prevents them from bubbling up.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake about 15 to 18 minutes. Mine only took 15 minutes.
