Kevin,

As always your baking looks awesome. Can I use another brand of the sugar free syrup or is Monin the best to acheive this? Is it like DaVinci ?

Graham Crackers
 
Kevin,
These look very easy to make. I think I'll give it a go. Need to bake
something for my Knit Wits (we knit layettes for the Marine base)
Lottsa babies every year. Anyway I will make them and perhaps layer
them with pudding and whipped cream. Thanks again for making our
LC life so comfortable and exciting.

Tweaker Geek 01-18-2008 09:45 AM

We'll be awaiting your first graham cracker pie recipe and pic Kevin!:)

Barb - pudding and whipped cream over them sounds good. By the way, love your pic - you are a lovely lady!

Kevin - those sure look like graham crackers, but do they taste like them?

I am never sure how to answer these type of questions Tweak. If you are asking me do these taste exactly like nabisco honey maid grahams I guess I would have to say no. If you are asking could anybody taste a major difference from the real thing if you used them to make a graham cracker crust I would also have to say no. The taste is slightly less sweet than the real thing by design but the texture after being completely cooled is right on.

Tweaker Geek 01-18-2008 07:36 PM

That's what I was hoping to hear Kevin. Thank you for another great recipe. I'm going to try to make some of these this weekend if I get time.

Tweaker Geek 01-20-2008 05:03 PM

I did make a batch of these today and they really are very graham crackery!

The only thing I did differently was that I used 1/8 s.f. honey and 1/8 cup vanilla syrup rather than 1/4 cup syrup. That little difference really made them like a Nabisco Honey Maid cracker Kevin.

My only words of caution are don't roll too thin and watch closely, they turn from golden to over-cooked in a flash.

Thanks for another great recipe Kevin!:up:

Are you planning to use these for a crust or going to continue your regular choc. crust?

Sorry, I'm just trying to get the applications right.

BTW, I made your Buckeye's for the Superbowl. Yummy!

TIA, Janie

Kevinpa 02-05-2008 11:37 AM

I am going to try these chocolate ones to make to make the crust for a frozen mocha cheesecake loaf and see how it turns out.

StacyW 02-05-2008 01:33 PM

Has anyone made an icebox cake out of these yet?

Tweaker Geek 02-05-2008 02:00 PM

I've been thinking about making a crust with the regular grahams but the chocolate version would be great. Kevin, I assume you will pre-bake the crust using either cracker, about how long would you recommend? Also, if using a recipe that the filling requires baking, would you pre-bake and then bake more when adding the filling of just add the filling and bake?

Frozen Mocha cheesecake with chocolate graham cracker crust - yummo, can't wait to see that one!

I used them when I made this Tweak.

Tweaker Geek 02-05-2008 04:43 PM

Thanks Kevin, I remember that recipe now. I didn't copy it at the time but I just did so I'll have it when I need it.

I don't want to bug you ;), but when are you planning to make the mocha cheesecake??:D

Kevinpa 02-05-2008 05:48 PM

Most likely since my DW is off tomorrow it won't be until Thursday or Friday.

Tweaker Geek 02-06-2008 09:06 PM

OK, I'll stay tuned!

Kevin:

Those look great.

One question:

Did you get a tiny fork to go with your tiny cutters?? :hyst:

Tweaker Geek 02-13-2008 12:52 PM

You could use some of those little heart shaped cookies to decorate a Valentine's dessert! I really like the "graham fish" too!

mac24312 11-25-2008 03:13 PM

Bumping for Thanksgiving!!

Thanks Kevin
HUGS!

This probably sounds a bit whiney, but please tell me Kevin's Carbalose or newest version of his Bake Mix is ok to use making these? Has anyone used it for the graham crackers?
