Holiday Graham Crackers Your Whole Family Will Enjoy

If your kitchen helper is anything like mine, they love graham crackers, especially scratch made.  In order to keep up with the demand, prepackaged classic graham crackers are always on hand too, but it’s fun to bake them from scratch every now and then.  I have used a few different recipes and wanted to try the below recipe for a holiday version of this classic treat.  Sprinkling cinnamon and sugar on the top also adds a fun holiday feel to your everyday graham cracker. Mix it up, have a few a with and a few without since you never know which will resonate with your kitchen helper the most.

The dough is easy to mix up and will need some chill time.  Your kitchen helper can help pour all of the ingredients into the stand mixer, roll out the dough and cut out their favorite shape.  With only a few minutes to bake you will be enjoying this afternoon snack in no time.  Even Santa might like a few.  Enjoy the holidays!
