Graham crackers are surprisingly easy to make. Use this recipe to make our Marshmallow Cookie Sandwiches.


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour, plus more for surface

  • ¾ cup graham or whole-wheat flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Coarse salt

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • ½ cup packed dark-brown sugar

  • 1 large egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flours, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Mix in egg. Add flour mixture, and mix to combine.

  2. Divide dough in half. Roll out each dough half to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

  3. Cut out eighteen 2 1/2-inch-square crackers, using a fluted cookie cutter or a knife. Transfer to baking sheets, spacing 1/2 inch apart.

  4. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer sheets to wire racks, and let cool.
