S'mores with Homemade Graham Crackers

During Snowzilla, there wasn't much to do except roll around in the snow and bake, a lot. However, only a combination of boredom and a graham cracker shortage at the corner store would cause me to bake graham crackers. That, and the promise of s'mores over a fire pit in a backyard full of more than 2 feet of snow. I don't know if I would make them again (except under similarly desperate circumstances), but it's nice to know that I can.

3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon

8 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup + 3 Tbsp honey

1. Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon into a bowl
2. Melt together the butter and honey. Pour this into the dry ingredients.
3. Mix with a fork, then push the dough together with your hands Don't knead or over-mix. Place the dough on a lightly-floured surface, and roll with a floured rolling pin to 1/8" thick. Cut into rectangles approximately 1 1/4" x 3" in size with a knife, and prick them with a fork. Place on a lightly-greased baking tray, and bake for just 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Cool on a rack.
