  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose gluten free flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)

  • Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • Divide dough into 2 or more portions. Roll the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper until it reaches a uniform thickness of 1/8th inch. (Do this directly on parchment paper.)

  • Use a pizza cutter or non-serrated knife to cut rectangles and trim off excess dough. (Directly on parchment paper.) Save excess dough to incorporate into subsequent rolling.
  • Transfer rectangles directly to baking sheet by lifting the parchment paper they are on, leaving them in place.

  • Bake for 8-11 minutes until set.
  • Once cooled, re-cut the scored rectangles to release them into individual crackers.

Notes

  • Parchment paper is your friend. Do the rolling and cutting directly on the parchment paper. Once you've removed the excess dough, lift the entire sheet of cut graham crackers to the baking sheet and leave them stuck together. They can be cut or broken where they are "scored" once they've baked and cooled. 
  • Use an all purpose gluten free flour blend. If you make your own, be sure to add a tsp of xanthan gum. Try this recipe for homemade gluten free flour from Gluten Free Palate. 
  • You must poke holes, this helps the crackers to get airy and crispy when they bake.
