Almond "Graham" Crackers

Okay, so in no way are these graham crackers...but they are easy and pretty tasty. That's just what Andrew asked if I was trying to copy, so to speak.  And they are, heaven forbid, relatively healthy!

Almond "Graham" Crackers

1 1/2 c almond flour*
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2-3 T water

Mix dry ingredients together.  Add water one tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together but is not sticky.  Form into a flat disk and roll out to cracker thickness between two gallon sized Ziplocs.  Carefully peel off one Ziploc and then lay (not pressing) it back down.  Flip over and peel of the other Ziploc.  Flip the rolled out dough onto a greased cookie sheet and cut into smallish cracker shapes with a knife or pizza cutter.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Take the crackers out and turn them over.  Continue to bake for another 5 to 10 minutes until you reach desired crispiness.  Don't eat all at once!

*Note:  I haven't purchased almond flour.  I used my dedicated spice (coffee) grinder and ground whole almonds and then put them through a sifter.  It took about 3 batches in the grinder with a couple redoes on the stuff that didn't get ground all of the way.  Don't let the blades get hot or you'll likely end up with almond butter (also tasty but not exactly what we're going for here).
