But I love being a part of The Secret Recipe Club and really don't like to miss it. So here I am at the last minute! However, I did NOT wait till the last minute to make my recipe and I also ended up making two recipes, but I didn't really like the pictures from the first one so I opted to make another. They were both amazing! Oh, you'd like to know who my "secret" blog was and what I made? Okay!
2 c. unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 c. + 2Tbs. whole wheat flour (or you can use all white flour if you want)
1 c. lightly packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. kosher salt
7 Tbs. unsalted butter, cut in to 1" cubes and frozen
1/3 c. mild flavored honey
5 Tbs. milk
2 Tbs. pure vanilla extract
1. In a food processor fitted with the blade attachment combine flours, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Pulse a few times to incorporate the ingredients. Add the frozen butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal.
2. Combine honey, milk and vanilla and stir to combine. Once combined add to flour mixture and pulse a few times, allowing the dough to barely come together. The dough will be extremely soft and sticky.
3. Spread a large piece of plastic wrap on counter and dust liberally with flour. I had to work the dough a bit with my hands to get it to come together well and hold its shape. Turn dough out on to plastic and pat gently pat to form a rectangle that's about 1" thick. Wrap rectangle in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
4. Divide dough in half. Place one half on a well floured surface, wrap the other half and put back in refrigerator. Roll dough to a 1/8" thickness. The dough may be sticky so add flour as needed. You can use any type of cookie cutter, or cut in to traditional "cracker" rectangles. I opted for both rectangle and circles. The circles were my favorite.5. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon sugar and (I totally missed this next step) and place in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes or freezer for 15-20 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough. Prick the dough with a fork or skewers.
6. Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned and slightly firm to touch. Baking times will vary.
These are good on their own and with s'mores.
