Graham Crackers

When I saw that part of the July Daring Bakers challenge was to make marshmallows, I knew that s'mores were in my future. Deb of Smitten Kitchen had recently done a post on the graham crackers from Nancy Silverton's Pastries from the La Brea Bakery, so I decided to give Nancy's recipe a try.

I made a few changes to the recipe out of necessity. It calls for dark brown sugar, and I was out so I used granulated sugar and substituted the 1/3 cup of honey (which I don't bake with anyway) for 1/3 cup molasses. Had I had the dark brown sugar, I was planning on using brown rice syrup in place of the honey. I still want to give that combo a try.

These are delicious cookies. They didn't have the texture of a traditional graham cracker - they were slightly soft in the center - but they were certainly tastier. They made delicious s'mores.

You can find the recipe here. Or buy the book, it's wonderful!


  1. These look so heavenly and so do the s'mores. I have a weakness for graham crackers and have never tried to make them at home.

  2. These look great! I can just imagine the fresh taste they bring to a s'more!

  3. I've used this recipe [] with great success. This one looks great, too. I was just talking about making them again, perhaps I'll try this one now!
