  • Dough
  • 375g / 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 192g / 1 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • Combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse several times to mix.
  • 7 tablespoons frozen butter, cut into 7 pieces
  • Add butter to bowl and pulse repeatedly until mixture has a coarse texture.
  • 121 / ⅓ cup clover honey
  • 5 tablespoons whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together honey, milk, and vanilla extract until combined.
  • Pour slowly into flour mixture, pulsing several times until the dough just comes together.
  • Chill
  • Place on a sheet of plastic wrap on the counter and lightly dust with flour. Remove dough from food processor and place on top. Press or roll into a 1-inch thick rectangle. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill it in the fridge until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • Shaping and Baking
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Divide dough in half. On a lightly dusted cutting board, roll half of dough into a long rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. Flour as necessary as the dough will be sticky. Cut dough into 2 inch by 4 inch rectangles using a bench scraper. Transfer rectangle to prepared baking sheet. Using wooden skewer or chopstick, poke decorative holes in dough. You can use the bench scraper to gently create a line down the center of each rectangle. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Place baking sheets in the fridge to chill, about 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Bake at 350°F until browned and slightly firm to the touch, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Let cool and serve. If you want softer, chewier graham crackers, store in an airtight container. For a harder, crumbly cracker, let sit in an open container for a day or two to dry out.
