Continuing on with the cracker theme, and the yumcoast's mutual unemployment equation (too much free time + a creative itch = tasty treats) I whipped up a batch of homemade graham crackers yesterday. They come from Smitten Kitchen, and you can find the recipe here. Given that the recipe does not have eggs, you could easily vegan-ize it by using margarine instead of butter. And they are super easy too! Essentially a rolled cookie, cut into rectangles, and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar! Mmmmmm.
And what better use of a homemade graham cracker, than a delicious s'more? I have had an inexplicable craving recently for s'mores, those oozy, perfect campfire treats of my youth. So, I invited some friends over, and in the absence of a proper camp fire, cranked up the gas stove top and roasted some marshmallows. Smeared said toasty mallows onto tasty grahams topped with a chocolate square and sandwiched the whole thing with a second graham. Again, mmmm.
