Here’s a fun fact for you: did you know that graham flour is just a coarsely milled type of whole wheat flour named after a Presbyterian minister?
Did you also know that it tastes a whole lot better when mixed with honey and cinnamon and cut into teeny little cookies?
Of course you did.
I love teddy grahams and was super excited to find a recipe that allowed me to make them myself (minus the “teddy” part). Just a warning: this recipe makes a ton. So many that I got hand cramps from the cookie cutters. Baker beware.
Homemade Teddy Grahams
- 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 5 Tbs. honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup water
Mix dry ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer on low. Add the honey, butter, and vanilla. Slowly add the water until the dough comes together nicely.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350° F. Working in sections, roll out dough on floured surface, cut into shapes, and bake on cookie sheets for 6-8 minutes, or until bottoms are brown.
Makes approximately 400 one-inch cookies. (Seriously.)
