Homemade graham crackers

This recipe doesn't use graham flour, just whole wheat flour. We have soft white wheat and we grind it ourselves very fine so there isn't a big difference.

1/4 cup powdered dry skim milk
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, beaten lightly
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
6 cups whole wheat flour (approx)

Mix together the powdered milk, water and lemon juice.  In separate bowl combine the brown sugar, honey, oil, vanilla and eggs. Combine both mixtures and then add salt, baking soda and flour. The amount of flour needed will vary - add more if its too wet or sticky. The mixture will be fairly sticky but should pull away from bowl easily. Spray oil on your hands and divide the dough into 4 parts. Each ball can be rolled out on a cookie sheet to 1/8" thick. (This will take some patience!) Thicker will make them more cakey and cookie like. (We like them this way too!) Prick dough with fork. Bake at 375 F for 15 minutest or until light brown. Remove from oven and immediately cut into squares.

This makes a TON of crackers but we have always eaten them within two days so I can't tell you about storage. If you are concerned, cut the recipe in half easily. They are delicious!
