“This is in response to a request for an alternative to Graham Crackers for those who live in countries where these are unavailable. I've tried shortcutting these to make a baked graham cracker crust, but found sometimes shorter isn't always better. These remind me of Nabisco's Honey Grahams. If you wish to make them into the Cinnamon Grahams, just sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar over the top before baking.”
