Garam Grahams

Once upon a time…before coronavirus, I could buy groceries that I needed. Now, grocery shopping seems to be the most challenging thing to do. I have been looking for our key ingredient, garam masala, since before the coronavirus outbreak but my husband reminded me that I could just make it at home. He was right, garam masala is a combination of spices, all of which I had at home! Let the baking continue.

Garam Grahams

I am often asked which is my favorite recipe that I have baked, which I always have trouble answering, we have made so many over the years. I usually say that I am most proud of making items that one would buy in a grocery store like graham crackers which this group made already. I was looking forward to trying this savory version.

I made a few changes to this recipe to suit my needs. First I made my own garam masala which did not include mace. I left out the 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper but I did include it in my garam masala mixture. I decided I don’t like the taste of black pepper in my cookies, savory or otherwise. I decided to sprinkle only sugar on the top before baking, I did not want the savory salt and pepper. I cut my graham crackers into 2-inch squares, I did not have a need for 100 triangles. After the crackers came out of the oven I immediately scored them again as I knew these would not break apart into even squares. I am happy with all my changes as these came out perfect, I loved them. I taste the savory garam masala and the sweetness from sugar. Another hit from Dorie for me.
