Homemade Graham Crackers

½ cup all-purpose flour
1 ¾ cups whole-wheat flour
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup cold butter, cut into ½-inch cubes
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp molasses
¼ cup cold water
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a food processor, mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the cold butter and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, about 30 seconds or so. Add the honey, molasses, water, and vanilla. Mix until the dough starts to come together in a ball, another 30 seconds. Scrape dough out of the mixer.

Between 2 sheets of waxed or parchment paper, roll the dough 1/8-inch thick. Chill for at least 1 hour, until firm.
Preheat oven to 350F. Retrieve dough; with a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into 2-inch squares (or other desired shape.) Arrange the crackers on parchment lined baking sheets. With a toothpick or fork, prick several holes in each cracker.

Bake for 15 minutes, until lightly browned at the edges. Remove from the oven and let cool on the pan.
