1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick butter, melted (1/2 cup)
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Melt stick of butter in a pan on the stove or microwave for 30 secs. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, stir together dry ingredients. Add the liquids: syrup, water, vanilla and melted butter. Stir well until a nice ball of dough is formed. Cut two pieces of parchment paper the size of the cookie sheet. Lay one piece of parchment paper on the cookie sheet. Place the ball of dough on the parchment paper. Lay the other piece of parchment paper on top of the ball of dough. Squish dough down a little with your fist. Use the rolling pin to roll the dough between the pieces of parchment paper. Roll until the dough covers the whole cookie sheet. Remove the top piece of parchment paper. Cut rolled dough into two inch squares or shapes with the cookie cutters, being sure to separate the shapes from the surrounding dough a little. Bake in oven for 18 minutes. Turn oven off, but leave crackers in the oven to crisp up from 30 mins. to one hour. Store in an air tight container.
Makes approximately 24 graham crackers. Portions will grow, as your child does.
