I havent posted in a while and there is a very good reason for it....I havent made anything that I have felt worthy of posting! Desserts have been the normal, same 'ole, same 'ole....dinners, the same...sad days i know! This week I was scrounging around in the pantry trying to find a cheap snack to make to add to my husbands lunch sack and this is what I came up with...the ingredients are simple, they are fairly easy to make, I made them whole-wheat, and best of all..the "p" raiting was- "I really like these!" Lucky for me, I got my mother's to try them as well..and both approved! So, if your willing try them out...they are real good with peanut butter smooshed between two..but what isnt good with peanut butter??? :)
Cinnamon Sugar Graham Crackers
3 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Agave Nectar (or i used some molasses)
3/4 Cup Water
Mix the all the dry ingredients together. Cream together butter and sugar. Add vanilla and agave and beat with a whisk until smooth. Add a little of the flour and a little of the water to the earth balance/sugar mixture and combine. Continue adding in flour and water, a little at a time, until all flour and water is added. Work the dough with your hands until everything is evenly combined.
Divide dough in half and cover. Let rest for 30 minutes at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 325º F. Roll out the dough into a rectangle that measures approximately 11″x15″. Trim edges. Using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut the dough into squares or rectangles (I cut mine into 1/2" X 3" rectangles). Prick the squares with a fork.
Bake for 30 minutes at 325º F or until the crackers are turning golden brown around the edges. You can sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top of the crackers during the last 10 minutes of baking if you like.
The cute container I have mine stored in only held half of the batch...it makes quite a few crackers. I just had to use this glass container Ive had it saved for a while trying to find something to put in it...and waaalaaa!
