Three recipes to the best Chocolate Cheesecake with homemade graham cracker crust and praline topping. from #dietersdownfallI don’t have square cookie cutters and without a proper cutters, mine are misshapen and honestly, ugly. I cut them with a knife and poked them with a fork. Hey, I had to make due…

Homemade Graham Crackers, might not be pretty, but they are good. from #dietersdownfallNow, at first glance, don’t be fooled by “graham flour”. It’s not that easy to find, so if you can find pastry flour, go ahead and use that. It’s what I used to make these.  Wanna learn more about different flours, check out this Wikipedia post.

They had a rich flavor that was almost nutty. There is also a slight sweet flavor that was really good. Of course, that didn’t stop me from adding some honey to them.

I love making my own graham crackers. I'm pretty sure I cut mine with a knife and poked them with a fork as well. They don't look bad... Rustic is in, right??! :)
