North American crackers with graham flour, honey, and cinnamon

I originally got this recipe from a newspaper and played around a bit until I thought it tasted like Sunshine Honey Grahams. I've occassionally used ordinary whole wheat flour when I didn't have any graham flour and it still worked alright. Graham flour is coarser.


(Makes 36-40)


  1. Preheat oven to Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into flour until mixture has the texture of cornmeal. Stir in baking powder, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add egg and hot water and mix until well blended.
  2. Knead dough 2 or 3 minutes. Set half aside. Roll out into a square about 1/8 inch thick. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Score dough into 2-inch squares, using a sharp knife.
  3. Bake at for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Roll out and bake remaining half of dough. Cool baked crackers and gently separate into squares.


Difficulty: moderate (judgment required).
Time: 10 minutes preparation, 20 minutes cooking and cooling.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
