and graham crackers

1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup honey

In a small bowl stir together milk and honey. Set milk mixture aside.

1-1/2 cups graham flour (whole wheat may be substituted)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening

In a large bowl stir together graham flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter and shortening till mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Make a well in center of flour mixture. Add milk mixture all at once. Using a fork, stir till mixture can be gathered into a ball. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by gently folding and pressing dough for 12 to 15 strokes or till dough is nearly smooth. Divide dough in half.

Sprinkle surface with additional graham flour. Roll each half of dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Using a pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut dough into 2-inch squares. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Using the tines of a fork, prick crackers well. Bake in a 350-degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until done. Remove crackers from sheet and cool on a wire rack.
