Healthy graham crackers

I got this recipe from my friend Hollie's blog. These are now one of my favorite snacks when I just feel like munching on something a little sweet :) I actually soaked my flour in a little buttermilk and water overnight to make it healthier, so I had to cook it longer, but they still turned out yummy!

Graham Crackers

Preheat oven to 375

• 1/2 stick softened butter
• 1/3 cup 100% pure maple syrup
• 2 1/2 cups flour
• 1/2 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon (preference)
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1 tsp vanilla
• 4 Tbsp cream

1.Blend the first two ingredients (for a while)

2. Add the other ingredients, but just moisten (do not overbeat)

3. Press down into 13 x 9 pan and an 8 x8 pan if you want thinner crackers. If you want the crackers to be thicker, use just the 13 x 9 or one slightly bigger.

4. Cut before baking and prick each cracker.

5. Bake for 10 minutes (Next time I'll bake longer to make them crispier.)

What does the recipe mean by 4 tbsp. of cream??? Is that whipping cream?? Just wondering because I hope to try this recipe soon! It sounds great!! Thanks so much for posting so many wonderful recipes!

I buy fresh, unpasturized milk from a local farmer, so I just scoop the cream off the top and use it for the recipe. But I'm sure heavy whipping cream would work just as well :)
