Cover your baking sheet with parchment paper and pull the dough out of the freezer. Separate each cracker then line them on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or just until your homemade graham crackers start to brown. If you want to add cinnamon to the tops of your crackers, melt a bit of butter (around 1 teaspoon), brush the tops of the hot crackers with the melted butter then sprinkle a cinnamon/sugar mix on top. Allow to cook completely before using.

  1. Hi Stacy, You don’t say where to add the baking soda. I would assume with the butter mixture.

  2. Debby Marshall says:

    Can these be made without cinnamon and still taste good

  3. These graham crackers are a treat. Much, much better than store-bought (which always taste stale to me). I did make them without any cinnamon and will likely reduce the brown sugar a bit next time, as they are a bit on the sweet side for my taste in a graham cracker. Rolled out on waxed paper directly on a baking sheet and the recipe just filled the sheet. Froze as directed, then broke apart and placed on cookie sheets to bake. They did take a little longer than 10 minutes to start to brown for me, and stayed soft. More like a cookie than a cracker. Maybe try rolling thinner if you want a crispier texture. Still delicious though! I made these to make a pie crust for a cheesecake that I ended up not making, but the graham crackers/cookies are yummy to just eat on their own too.
