What's in my cookie jar.

This is one of those recipes that you come across and wonder: "now why didn't I think of that?". One of my lovely Aunts was nice enough to send me this recipe for Grahm Crackers. This was fun to make with e, she loves scooping out the flour! There is another grahm cracker recipe in the Retro Desserts book that had the Oreo recipe. I will have to try it to compare to this one and let you know which is better! I these this would make a sweet little holiday gift with a couple of homemade marshmallows (which a delicious by the way) and a hunk of chocolate in a cute little bag. Enough with the idea overload and on with the recipe....


  • 1C butter, softened
  • 1/2C dark brown sugar, packed
  • 2T honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2C flour
  • 1C whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, divided
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3T sugar

 Beat butter and next 3 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer for one minute, or until fluffy.

Combine flours, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl; add to butter mixture, beating until just blended.

Use dampened fingertips to press dough into a 17"x20" jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper 

smooth surface of dough with bottom of a dry measuring cup.Make sure to flatten them out really well here, mine were a little bit too think. Remove and discard top parchment paper.

Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and sugar over dough. I sprinkled a little extra. Using a fork, score dough into 24 squares, pressing completely through dough with each indentation. Bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until golden and crisp. While crackers are still warm, score again. Cool completely and break into individual crackers. Makes 24.
