Biscotti'esq Graham Crackers

For Valentine's Day, Alex and I baked homemade Graham Crackers. See recipe {here}. My friend Reshma told me that she made them and that they came out great. Mine, not so much. I'm pretty sure that I over-baked them even though the recipe said to bake for 25 minutes.

My husband and I both paused when we tried to bite down on them. We were surprised by how rock solid they were. The only thing I could think of was, "my bad."

After dunking them a few times in hot tea, they tasted alright. I like to think of them as Biscotti'esq Graham Crackers.

I bought gourmet marshmallows and a chocolate bar to make S'mores but given the cement like quality of our crackers I figured they'd only get tougher with more heat. So instead, I'm going to try it again. I think my next batch will be must better.

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Valentine's Day with someone sweet in your life.


  1. Biscotti graham crackers actually sound very good. You might be onto something.

    I love that picture of Alex concentrating so hard!

  2. Sorry they did not work out. I should have mentioned that I did not bake them as long as the recipe said. I also used whole wheat pastry flour to make them "healthier". Let me know how they turn out when you make them again.
