Honey Grahams


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar (or use regular sugar)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup warm water


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment.
  2. Mix together the flours, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl or in the food processor. Cut the butter into these dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  3. Dissolve the honey in the warm water. Add to the flour mixture and blend to form a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
  4. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll each ball of dough out to about 3/16-inch thick. With a sharp knife, cut into 2 x 3-inch rectangles. Prick each one all the way through in 3 or 4 places with the tines of a fork. Place the crackers on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Turn and bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until light brown.
  6. Cool on a rack.

Yields 35 to 40 honey Grahams.
