Graham Crackers

Today, both Ruby & I are a bit under the weather. As much as we try to prevent sickness in our family, it's bound to happen, so when it does, we're usually pretty good about hunkering down & resting like it's an Olympic sport. Neither one of us really like sitting in one place for hours on end, though, so we found a few (low energy) activities to occupy our day. One of those was making graham crackers.
I have this weird love & appreciation for softer-than-usual graham crackers. I may have been known to leave a package (or two) open so that they actually become soft (gasp, I know!) And most people swear by them for their kids-- such an easy, delightful snack, right? We usually try to stay away from the majority of snacky processed foods, so when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it.

This recipe was super easy & I had everything on hand, which is a bonus. If you are really crafty, you could cut these babies into fun little shapes (like the animals or alphabet cutters that are in my "favorite things" on the right hand side) instead of going the boring rectangular route. You can even make pretty little designs on them if your toddler isn't screaming at you to eat them. I gave up after three, so you can see in my picture.
Graham Crackers
Ingredients
2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup  demera
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, chilled & cubed
1/4 cup honey (get local if you can)
1/4 cup water

Directions
Preheat oven to 350. In a food processor combine the first 5 ingredients. Add butter to the mix & pulse until it resembles coarse meal. Add honey & water & continue to mix until it all combines.

Remove & shape the dough into a flat disk & place between two pieces of parchment paper. Roll dough out until 1/4 inch thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutter or knife. Place cookies on a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet & bake for 15 minutes. Cool & serve (preferably with some whole milk... mmm).

Here are some updated pics after getting some amazing alphabet cutters (see the link to them in my "favorite things" on the right hand side).
