Crackers, Graham (D, TNT)
Source: Wayne Harley Brachman, "Retro Desserts"
Yield: 48

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup light rye flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into pea-size bits
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoon molasses
1/4 cup cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a food processor or the bowl of an electric mixer, mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the cold butter and mix or process until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the honey, molasses, water, and vanilla. Mix until the dough comes together in a ball.

Between 2 sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap, roll the dough 1/2" thick.

Chill for 1 hour, until firm.

Set a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350°F.

Lightly flour the dough and roll 1/8" thick. With a sharp knife or cookie cutter, cut into 2" squares. Arrange the crackers on nonstick or parchment lined cookie sheets. With a fork, prick several holes in each cracker. Bake for 15 minutes, until lightly browned at the edges. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan.
