Gluten-free cinnamon graham crackers recipe
Adapted slightly from Gluten Free Baking
Yields about 1 dozen crackers
- 1-1/2 cups brown rice flour
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 5 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, for topping
- 1 tablespoon sugar, for topping
- Parchment paper
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Mix the 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the brown rice flour, cornstarch, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
- Add the cubed butter to the mixture. Use a pastry cutter to mix in the butter until the mixture is coarse. There should be no chunks of butter left behind.
- Add the milk and honey to the mixture, and stir it together to form a dough.
- Cut a piece of parchment paper, sized about 12 inches by 16 inches. Dust it lightly with a bit of brown rice flour.
- Place the dough onto the parchment paper and pat it into a rectangle.
- Cut another piece of parchment paper, also sized 12 x 16 inches, and put it on top of the dough. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough so it's about 1/8-inch thick.
- Remove the top piece of parchment paper and place the dough (along with the bottom piece of parchment paper) onto a baking sheet.
- Carefully score the dough into rectangles, about 6 inches by 3 inches in size, or smaller squares.
- Sprinkle the rectangles with the cinnamon-sugar mixture, then use a fork to prick the dough.
- Chill the dough for about 10 minutes, then bake for 15 minutes, or until the crackers are lightly browned.
- Cool the crackers on a wire rack (carefully slide the sheet of parchment, with the crackers remaining, off the baking sheet and onto the rack).
- When completely cool, carefully break the crackers apart and serve.
These goodies are a classic treat!
