Homemade Graham Crackers

I was intrigued when Sassy Radish posted the pictures and recipe for these honey graham crackers. Graham crackers are a staple snack in our home but the thought of homemade crackers sounded inviting. The recipe was fairly simple. The butter, honey and sugar were beaten for a few minutes. Then the dry ingredients were added. I made the dough one day, refrigerated it, and then baked the crackers the next. The dough was a little crumbly but once it was fully warmed it was much easier to work with. I cut them with a cookie cutter so they'd all be a uniform size and docked them with a fork. Then I refrigerated them for about 15 minutes before baking them. They came out beautifully browned and subtly flavored, just like graham crackers should be. These would be delightful, as Sassy Radish suggests, as gourmet s'mores complete with dark chocolate and homemade marshmallows. Maybe another post!
