2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup softened margarine
1/2 cup packed brown sugar


Cream margarine and sugar together. Gradually stir in flour. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth, about three minutes. Pat into a thick rectangle about 1/3-inch thick, measuring approximately 11x8-inches. Cut into 2x1-inch strips. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Prick with a fork. Bake at 300 °F for 25 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.


This short bread recipe works as a replacement for graham crackers.


Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.
