Graham Cracker Cookies with Natural Frosting


      Graham crackers are a firm cracker and are perfect to use for your holiday cut-out cookies and to use as "edible" ornaments to hang during the holidays.

      Bake: Preheated 350 degrees oven

      Time: 12-15 minutes

      Makes: 50 crackers

      In a small bowl, stir together with a wire whisk, then set aside:

      • 1/3 cup milk
      • 1/4 cup honey

      In a mixer bowl with the wire whip, combine:

      • 2 1/2 cups white while wheat flour
      • 1/4 cup brown sugar
      • 1 tsp baking powder
      • 1/2 tsp baking soda
      • 1/4 tsp salt

      Blend the ingredients together.

      Add to the flour mixture:

      • 1/3 cup butter, slightly softened
      • 1/4 cup shortening

      Mix on low or stir until the flour has the appearance of small peas.

      Then add, all at once: above honey-milk mixture.

      Toss with a fork until well blended. Form into a ball. If the dough is too dry, sprinkle a small amount of water on the dough until you can form a ball.

      Divide the dough in half. Sprinkle the surface with additional Graham flour. Roll each half of dough into 1/8-inch thickness. Use any of your favorite holiday cut-outs. If you want to make Graham crackers, use your pizza cutter and cut the dough into 2-inch squares and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Prick each square twice with tines of a fork.

      Bake until lightly browned on the edge. Cool completely on a wire rack.
