We go through a lot of graham crackers in our house.
My kids love to snack on them, and I spread them with peanut butter for quick and easy lunches.
Since we go through about a box a week, I decided that it was time to try making them.
I left the dough a little on the thicker side, so they were more like soft, graham cookies than crisp graham crackers (the unholy amount of humidity in my house didn’t help them crisp up either).
Even though they weren’t just like the crackers from the store, we loved them!
These graham cracker (cookies) have a lot more flavor, and they’re really easy (and fun) to make.
