These are so much fun to make. You don't just have to stick with squares and rectangles, get creative with shapes and cookie cutters.

  • Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and brown sugar together until light. Stir in the flour mixture. Slowly pour in the water; stir until dough is formed. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.

  • On a well floured board, roll dough to between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick. Use a knife or cookie cutter to cut dough into squares or rectangles. Transfer crackers to prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until light brown, 11 to 13 minutes. Remove crackers from oven. Use a fork to pierce multiple holes on tops of crackers.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I needed graham cracker crumbs and since it was the only graham cracker recipe that did not ask for whole wheat flour, I tried it. I doubled the cinnamon, but except for that, I followed the recipe. I used light brown sugar but I think dark would give more flavor and a deeper color. Since I needed crumbs and not cookies, I just rolled out the dough and did not cut it in pieces. Big mistake! The outside got crunchy but the middle remained chewy. So I cut the middle part in pieces and put them back in the turned off but still warm oven for 5 more minutes, and I got golden brown, crispy crackers. The crackers were not quite as nutty as store bought (I guess that's why other recipes use whole wheat flour) but they were a good enough approximation. Next time, I'll use a bit less sugar, although this is a matter of personal taste. Thanks, Steph, for the recipe. Read More

These were really good but I changed it up a bit. Instead of the water I used milk. I also added a little extra cinnamon half a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of honey. The batter was quite sticky but don't let this discourage you! Just keep flouring the surface and the rolling pin. I did have a problem with the crackers only getting brown at the corners when they were in the oven so I took those out and put the rest back in. It may just be my oven. Also I recommend you poke holes in them with a fork before you cook them so they don't get any bubbles. I also topped them with cinnamon sugar... I made a mix in a bowl and used 3 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. They turned out not too sweet and not too bland in other words "lagom" for all you Swedes. At least that is how I felt. Be sure you don't leave them in the oven too long. If they start turning a darkish brown (before a dark dark brown) then they will taste a bit burnt. You want them to get golden! I'm thinking about trying them with cocoa powder next time. =) Read More

I can't rate this actually 'cause I haven't tried them yet (I don't know how to give a tip on here) but I do know that you can buy graham flour in the store or online. The brand is Hodgson Mill in a brown bag. This might be the difference in it tasting like graham crackers you get in the store. Read More

These were good but not quite as good as store bought. A little hard to cut in to shapes because the batter was so sticky. Read More

I was looking for a cracker recipe that was chewy enough for my 1 year old. These are perfect. I will probably play around with flavor a bit the next time I make them but they are still good as is. Read More
