garam grahams

Boy– a lot has happened in a week! The restaurant I cook for in the now-ghost town of NYC is closed, and while my job is 86’d for the time being, I am thankful to be healthy and will try to put my self-isolated energy into some long-neglected household organization projects, as well as some more fun cooking and baking stuff. I’ll start here….with cinnamon and honey and earthy notes of cumin and coriander, these Garam Grahams ride the line between sweet and savory and are in the “cocktail cookies” section of the book. Like the last time we made graham crackers, these are speedily whizzed together in the food processor. Unlike the last time we made them, though these have garam masala and black pepper for a funky Indian-ish twist. Sounds weird, but tastes good.

They’re finished off with a dusting of sugar, salt and pepper before going into the oven. I don’t know if you can really tell from the photo, but I used a coarse gold sanding sugar to give them a bit of Bollywood sparkle. I think they go as well with wine or beer as they do with a cup of chai or coffee…whichever best helps calm anxious nerves.

  2. It’s pretty uncertain right now with everything, and sadly it’s bringing out the worst in some people. I loved that these biscuits did not need an egg – perfect ration food. I loved them, but I do wish I had just left them square, like you.

  3. Such difficult and trying times for all, but we must keep up our good spirits..thats the way forward. Good to see you are baking more goodies that we can all try out.

  4. Good luck with the house projects. Your restaurant is not cooking to-go meals? Look forward to baking together.

  5. Bollywood sparkle! Love this! Steph, I’m sorry about your job situation but glad you’re safe and well. Hugs XO
