Homemade Graham Crackers, Part II

Hi! We haven't actually fallen off the face of the earth.  We just kind of didn't blog for a while. I have been baking a lot on my own, but just not new recipes. I've made lots of shortbread for tea parties (it's easy and fast!), and also gingersnaps and chocolate chip cookies. I did bake a second version of graham crackers with my mom, though. (Here's our first attempt.) This recipe is from America's Test Kitchen's DIY cookbook, and we thought it was better than our first … [Read more...]

Homemade Graham Crackers, Part 1!

After we made wheat thins, we decided we'd like to try some other crackers.  We found this recipe on the internet (at Kitchen Simplicity), and we're also planning to try one from America's Test Kitchen, just to compare the two.

You probably didn't get our last post, though, so here's the link...we tried out a recipe for homemade wheat thins! We've been on a bit of a cracker-making tear, so we'll be back next week with a graham cracker recipe. Sorry about the … [Read more...]

Homemade Wheat Thins

For something different, my mom suggested we make crackers.  I've never made crackers before! Making cracker dough isn't complicated or time-consuming, but it does take a while to roll and cut the crackers.  My favorite part was cutting the crackers once we rolled out the dough. (Well, that and eating the crackers!) These didn't taste exactly like real Wheat Thins (and they're a lot thinner!), but we thought they were delicious. To make them, first heat your oven to 400º F. Then … [Read more...]
