The title I gave these tells it all!
“It’s not too late to have a happy childhood” Graham Crackers
- 2 1/2 c. + 2 T unbleached all purpose flour
1 c. dark brown sugar, lightly packed
1 t. baking soda
3/4 t. kosher salt
7 T (3.5 oz.) butter, cubed and frozen
1/3 c mild flavored honey
5 T whole milk
2 T vanilla extract
freshly ground cinnamon
In food processor combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Combine then add butter and pulse until consistency of coarse meal. In small bowl whisk together honey, milk and vanilla. Add to flour mixture and pulse until dough barely comes together. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and pat the dough into a rectangle 1 in. thick. Wrap in plastic and chill (freeze) until firm. Slice into 1/4 in. crackers, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake at 350 for 25 minutes until browned and slightly firm to the touch.
