Recipe: Homemade Honey Graham Crackers

by Texas Homesteader ~

I recently invited my folks to dinner at our house.  I made cute little individual apple pies baked in canning jars for dessert for them.  But I had 1/2 jar of apple pie filling left and I needed to make sure it got used. Ya know, when that apple pie filling jar starts with the picking of the actual apples, you don’t want to waste any of it!

I decided to use it up making a simple dessert for RancherMan & me.  I’d heat up that apple pie filling, put it on a bed of graham crackers and top it with graham cracker crumbs & whipped cream. Kinda like a quick No-Bake Apple Pie Dessert.  But I didn’t have any graham crackers. So I sat out to find (and of course not follow, lol) a recipe using standard pantry ingredients.

I needed graham crackers for a recipe so I made them myself. I even made them extra honey-flavored! Easy, Inexpensive & Delicious. #TexasHomesteader

Well I’ve been on this road to voluntary simplicity for a few years now. So for fun I always challenge myself to make those things homemade that I used to just assume had to be purchased commercially at the grocery store.
