Homemade molasses graham crackers
These homemade crackers are the perfect kid-friendly treat. Rather than cutting into long rectangles this version focuses on smaller sizes making them easy for little hands to grab onto. I used a very small, round biscuit cutter to get the smaller size but you can certainly use a knife and cut them into any shape you desire. These are great for putting into lunchboxes or as an afternoon snack. Keep these crackers stored in an airtight container for up to five days.
