Grahamy Love

I was at TJ's yesterday looking at the cookies I'd put in my basket for the boys' lunches and thought I'd just make some instead so I put them back and started thinking about graham crackers. Mmmmm....we all love them and since I've been in a cooking and crafting phase and because I've never made them before I was instantly on a mission.

So I went to Whole Foods to look for graham flour (which they had, Bob's Red Mill) because, hello...graham crackers right? Then I came home and started looking for recipes and guess what? Only one of them even used graham flour which I thought was odd but who am I to judge?

So, that's the one I went with and you can find it here. I just made a couple of tweeks because that's what I do and they worked because they're practically gone already so....

I used 5 tablespoons of honey (raw orange blossom)
seeds from two vanilla beans instead of extract
all dark brown sugar (packed)
vanilla sugar to sprinkle on the tops
and ~ a heart-shaped cookie cutter for loviness

Make these and give them to your family because you love them. Make s'mores from them or ice cream sandwhiches, or dip half of them in chocolate or eat them with some sharp white cheddar (don't knock this....sweet and savory is a divine combination) or stack them up and put them in a clear treat bag tied with kitchen twine for a new neighbor or a favorite teacher.

These are for me...


  1. Oh yummy! I'm going to try these this weekend!

  2. ...a heart-shaped cookie cutter for loviness. Totally something I'd do. Just for that sentence alone, I want to make these. Of course the yummy looking loveys influenced me too. :)

  3. I would love to make my own graham crackers. It would be so useful to have on hand for all sorts of recipes like you mentioned.

  4. I love all the whole ingredients you used. YUM! The pictures are so charming as well.

  5. Looks good enough to eat. I really does look good.

  6. Annalea, These look amazing. Thanks for sharing the recipe - I would love to give it a try. I featured this today - stop by and grab a featured button if you like. Thanks so much for linking to The Sunday Showcase Party. I greatly appreciate it. Hope you have a wonderful week. ~ Stephanie Lynn

  7. I love homemade graham crackers!! My kids like the store-bought better, but that just means more for me!
