For perfect graham crackers every time, here are a few tips: Using baker’s ammonia rather than baking powder is a handy trick that ensures the light and crisp texture of the crackers. Baking powder will work well, too, though it will result in a slightly harder cracker. Substituting orange juice for some of the water in this recipe mellows the strong flavor of whole wheat flour without adding any distinctive citrus flavor. Use all water for a more wheaty flavor in your crackers if you wish. The key to perfect graham crackers is to roll the dough extremely thin. Roll the dough out between two sheets of lightly greased parchment paper to make the process easier.
