Recently our oldest daughter was visiting us. While she was staying with us she made the most delicious batch of homemade graham crackers. They were so much better than store bought graham crackers. She found the recipe on the website. They are so easy to make in just a short amount of time you can be enjoying a batch!

Visiting you from Weekend Wonders Blog Party. Sounds wonderful! I am craving some now with peanut butter. Repinned! Following you via Pinterest!

Carol on April 26, 2013 2:15 pm

The crackers look really good. I am wondering how the recipe might work with rye flour or oats substituted for some of the flour. I will bookmark this recipe. I am visiting from the Farm Girl Blog Fest.

Nancy on April 26, 2013 2:49 pm

I would think you could use other flours just and have them be just as delicious.

Julia on April 26, 2013 6:00 pm

We really need to try making these. They look delicious and would help us save money.

Mel on April 27, 2013 3:26 am

I have so many many recipes that have graham crackers and you can not get them here, yum pinning these :) thanks for sharing.

Diane Balch on April 28, 2013 1:25 pm

What a fun cookie to make with kids… and they probably taste 3 times as good as the store bought. Thanks for sharing this with us on foodie friday.

Lois Christensen on April 28, 2013 5:52 pm

Sue on April 30, 2013 7:26 pm

Better than store bought graham crackers! I got to try this recipe and it doesn’t hurt that they are made with the wheat flour since I have some on hand.

Nancy on April 30, 2013 7:49 pm

I can’t wait to try these with s’mores! Maybe I should try making my own marshmallows!

Karen on April 30, 2013 8:05 pm

Love the photo. Graham crackers is the next think I want to try to make. They look so cute and have heard they taste so much better then store bought. This is a must try Andi

Barb @ A Life in Balance on May 3, 2013 8:17 pm

I used to make graham crackers! I should try this with my kids. They would get a kick out of cutting out the shapes.

April @ The 21st Century Housewife on May 6, 2013 1:35 pm

We can’t get graham crackers in England (the closest we come is Digestive Biscuits which are not quite the same) so it’s great to have a recipe so I can make my own! I’ve pinned your recipe and I’m featuring it in my Hearth and Soul post tomorrow :)

Nancy on May 6, 2013 1:40 pm

Thanks for stopping by, my daughter introduced me to Digestive Biscuits when she was living in London. You’re right, they’re not quite the same but they are delicious!

Becky on May 7, 2013 12:43 am

This will be a great recipe for me to make with my little one. Thanks for sharing on Tuesday Greens!

Carol J. Alexander on May 7, 2013 2:22 am

I am using this recipe for a cheesecake crust! Hope it works out! Just finished the’s REALLY good! I just hope that it won’t burn if the cake has to cook longer…? :) Happy trails!

Nancy on July 7, 2013 4:16 pm

Please let me know how your cheesecake comes out!

MoonLight @ AWorldInMyOven on September 2, 2013 12:44 pm

I keep wanting to try these ‘Graham crackers’ people keep talking about, but everywhere I see recipes for sweet cinnamon cookies.. It sounds all wrong! These look delicious though!

Nancy on September 2, 2013 5:38 pm

They are delicious and an easy recipe! Do try them!
