Ever thought of making homemade graham crackers? The thought never crossed my mind until recently when we visited Modern Cookie Company, a local cookie shop in Larkspur. We ordered these decadent s’mores on homemade graham crackers and we just about flipped out of our seats they were soo good. The s’mores were so amazing that I wanted to turn this experience into something I could replicate at home, so I challenged myself to creating a version of my own.
Update: I have posted the s’more recipe and you can see it here. It’s wonderful because it’s something you can make year round. It also has a unique topping. Enticed are you?
I didn’t even have a clue as to what ingredients even went into a graham cracker so I googled homemade graham crackers and stumbled upon Tracey’s Culinary Adventures. Her recipe looked easy enough and I like the fact that they had some whole-wheat flour in them as it made them seem a bit more nutritious that I had originally thought. The other bonus was the ingredients required were all things I had on hand at home. I wanted to replicate the graham crackers I ate at the cookie shop so I used a cookie cutter here instead of making them into the traditional graham cracker shape. If you like the look of the traditional graham cracker then link over to Tracey’s site and she will show you how.
These graham crackers are more buttery and cookie-like than the store-bought variety. They are sweet but not to sweet. Once you try this homemade cracker you may never go back to the store bought variety again.
