Homemade graham crackers

Finally! Another cookie in my cookie-a-week series. I will be playing catch-up since I've lost time to holiday travel and computer breakdown. Unfortunately, I can't do all of my catching up right now as our computer is still broken. That means, cookie-a-week becomes more like three or four cookies in one week. As long as we have cookies, right?
Today's cookie: the homemade graham cracker. Yum! I had never made these before and now wonder why. These are simple, tasty, and versatile.
We used the recipe from Carole Walter's Great Cookies. I think. Shoot. I'm not at home and can't see it. It was a photocopy. I'll change this later, if I find I'm wrong. I hate to reprint the recipe, but can offer you two I found online. Here at 101 Cookbooks and this one at Baking Bites.
We cut ours in squares and coated half of them with chocolate, but you have a lot of options on how to eat these. You could draw lines down the middle to imitate store bought crackers, you could frost them, sandwich them, add peanut butter, etc. And really, delicious no matter which way you go.
Since I have access to these pictures, I'm going all out with a photo journal of our graham cracker making. See below for an updated 2008 Holiday Cookie list.

Those look delicious! I've never made graham crackers before, usually I buy mine at Trader Joe's, but these look like a great project for the kids to help with. Thanks!

Those are great little gift items, too, since homemade graham crackers are more unusual than cookies. Lovely!

I cannot wait to try making our own graham crackers. My boys eat them by the ton so this will be an excellent baking project for us.
