What gives Graham Crackers their flavor?
Graham crackers have a slightly sweet flavor. The primary sweetener is sugar, or sucrose, that is derived from sugar cane or sugar beet. It typically makes up about 5-15% of the recipe. Other sweetening ingredients used are dextrose, corn syrup, molasses, and honey.
How do I use old graham crackers?
Ground into crumbs, they can take the place of flour in many desserts, as I’ll prove in the following recipes; whole, they can be used to help form the layers of a no-bake cake. Add them to popsicles, make them into a pie crust, or roll them up into cinnamon rolls for an extra special treat.
