1 1/2 C. whole wheat flour (I used a combination of freshly ground whole wheat and spelt flours )
1/2 C. wheat germ
1 C. unbleached flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 C. butter or margarine, softened (you could also substitute shortening)
1/2 C. brown sugar (I didn't want to make brown sugar so I used evaporated cane sugar)
1/2 C. honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 C. milk
Mix in sifted ingredients alternating with milk to form dough. Dough will be slightly sticky. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Divide dough into quarters and roll into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface using a floured rolling pin.
Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into squares. Prick several times with a fork and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mix.
Transfer to cookie sheet and bake in 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from sheet and cool.
-Use these crackers to make a graham cracker pie crust.
-If you don't have wheat germ, substitute another 1/2 C. whole wheat flour.
-For chocolate graham crackers, substitute cocoa powder for the wheat germ.
-For plain crackers, leave out the cinnamon and don't sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar.
-These make awesome s'mores!
