    Graham Crackers

    I've been looking at recipes on Amercian websites which mention Graham crackers. Are these similar to what we have in Australia as Marie biscuits? i.e. plain sweet biscuits which can be easily rolled into crumbs and used in all sorts of recipes as bases. Thanks for any guidance.

    Tibbs,

    Not quite sure if they're the same thing, though it sounds as if they can be substituted.

    Graham crackers are whole wehat, Maries are refined white flour (from memory).

    If you'd posted this last week, we could have asked our honeymooning couple WMVPs to bring some to Sydney. (check out http://www.katieswedding.com)

    Glad to have been of help. Epicurious is one of my favorite food sites, and the first place I turn to when I want inspiration for a meal.

    Re: Graham Crackers

    Thanks everyone. As Geoff says, looks like they could be used in the same recipes but they would probably give a bit different taste.

    I had been following the suggestions for the Honeymoon Couple but noted they were not getting down south to good old Melbourne. Maybe on their anniversary !

    Actually, it's more than "similar," it is a whole wheat flour, according to the Epicurious dictionary:
    <hr>graham flour
    Whole-wheat flour that is slightly coarser than regular grind. It was developed by Rev. Sylvester Graham, a Connecticut cleric, who was one of the early leaders in health food advocacy.<hr>
    But... the grind may be partially responsible for the slightly "airy" texture of the crackers. Anyway, the only known uses for graham crackers by anyone I know are (1)*crushing them to make a crust for a cheesecake, and (2)*s'mores.

    <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> "s'mores" ?? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Sorry, it's probably another "other side of the pond" thing! (I'm UK).

    Ahh! S'mores. I could not get to the Girl Scout recipe but they are definitely better when the marshmallow is toasted over a campfire that has properly burned down to coals. Cooking marshmallows over flames leaves them burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. It is also better when the chocolate is at room temperature so that it melts when assembled. Last summer I made one with Andes Mints and more than ever, I wanted s

    Marie biscuits just don't do it. I'm living in Oz now..and whenever I go home load up on Graham crackers...wish David Jones would carry them in their food shops...my favourite recipe..nanaimo squares needs them...recently made them for a group of ex-pats and their Aussie spouses..some had never tried them before and all agreed..not the same using anything else
