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.

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!

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.

HTH

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!

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

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 tried my hand at some snack grahams today using my new mini cookie cutters.

I got 10 dozen crackers @ 1 carb for 8 crackers.

1 1/2 cups lc cake and cookie flour mix (carbquik version)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 splenda quick pack
3 T butter flavor crisco
1/4 cup Monin sf caramel syrup

Combine dry ingredients well.
Cut shortening into flour then add syrup and mix just until dough comes together.
Do not overwork the dough.
Form a round, cover with plastic wrap, and chill for approx. 1 hour.
When chilled roll out a square between parchment to 1/8 inch thick.
Cut out crackers.
Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and prick each several times with fork.
Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 10 min or cracker are golden brown.

Yum!

Those look great.

One question:

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

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

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?
