I am sure you all have been wondering when I was ever going to explain those funky looking brown things on the flickr pics over there ——–>
Well, finally …… here it is!!
They are GRAHAM CRACKERS!!
(Awesome for S’mores and they make great crumbs too)
3/4 cup melted butter or smart balance, or the like
1/4 cup honey
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (try Pamelas or this substitution)
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 – 3/4 cup water
Mix the top 4 ingredients together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Then, Mix both together, adding the1/2 and 3/4 cup of water, until mixture can be formed into a small ball.
Refrigerate for about an hour.
Preheat oven to 325.
Roll out dough to 1/8″ thick or so. Either score them or Cut into 2″ squares, and prick with a fork for that cool graham cracker effect OR you can do as I did and forget refridgeration and simply pat the dough ball into a half sheet pan so it is nice and flat (might need 2 pans if you plan on doing 1/8″ – I left them at 1/4″ and they were thick, but made a delicious crumb crust for bars, cheesecakes and things like that. The more they cool, the more they resemble graham crackers
Bake for 25 minutes.
OH and yes, I sprayed the pan with a non-stick spray.
For crumbs, I simply popped them into the handy dandy processor and walla! YUM CRUMBS!
