Yes, another cracker recipe. I can't seem to keep crackers in my house for long, so I am always making them now. That is the problem with going homemade - toddler and husbands (and breast-feeding Mamas) eat them up FAST! This was a request by an old friend of mine and she gave me the recipe to try out. This is the recipe she had me try. I like this recipe for lots of reasons. One, it uses all whole wheat flour. Two, it uses honey as the sweetener. Three, they come out great, as long as you bake them long enough.
I said this because the first batch I made I didn't bake long enough. I baked them about 10 minutes, as per the directions, and they did look nice and brown. In fact, a couple were a little on the too-dark side. However, once they cooled, they weren't exactly crispy like crackers should be. Since I had the other half of my crackers waiting to be baked (I didn't want to dirty two cookie sheets so I just used the same one twice) I decided to bake them longer. I baked them for what I thought was going to be too long, and was worried because I didn't want to burn them. I basically took them out right before they burned, and they were perfect. once they cooled they had that nice crunch to them. So if you make these, they need to be really really done. Almost burnt :).
The recipe is like many other cracker recipes - you mix the dry ingredients, cut in the butter, and then add the rest of the liquids.

They were easy to cut out with a pizza cutter.
