For the Cinnamon Graham Crackers
8 tblsp
unsalted butter
1/4 cup(s)
5 tblsp
whole milk
1 1/2 tblsp
pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup(s)
whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup(s)
dark brown sugar
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
kosher salt, see notes
batch of cinnamon sugar topping, see below
Cinnamon Sugar Topping
1/4 cup(s)
granulated sugar
2 tsp
ground cinnamon

Directions 15 steps | 215 Minutes

Step 1

Cut the butter into small cubes and place it in the freezer.

Step 2

In a large measuring cup, whisk together the honey, milk and vanilla extract together. Set aside.

Step 3

In the bowl of a food processor, add the all-purpose flour, pastry flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Pulse until combined.

Step 4

Add the frozen butter and pulse until pea-sized pieces of butter are incorporated into the flour mixture.

Step 5

Add the honey mixture into the flour mixture and pulse until just combined.

Step 6

Transfer the dough into a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Step 7

Remove the dough from the refrigerator and cut it in half. Refrigerate one portion of the dough.

Step 8

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Dust the work surface with flour and roll out the dough to about ⅛-inch thick.

Step 9

Use a square 2 ½-inch cutter to cut out squares. Remember to dust the cookie cutter with flour before cutting for clean cuts.

Step 10

Place the cut dough onto the prepared baking sheet.

Step 11

Using the end of a skewer or a fork, poke nine holes into the dough, like a cracker.

Step 12

Make the cinnamon-sugar topping. In a small bowl, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon together.

Step 13

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar topping over the crackers. Refrigerate the crackers for at least 30 minutes before baking. Repeat with the remaining half of the dough. Gather all the scraps and roll the dough into a large disc. Refrigerate until firm and roll out and cut out more squares.

Step 14

While the crackers are chilling, preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the crackers for about 10-15 minutes or until the crackers are golden brown.

Step 15

Cool and enjoy with a tall glass of milk or as a s’more.
