Yield: Yields forty-five 2x2-inch crackers.
Put both flours, and the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a food processor and pulse until combined. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk, honey, molasses, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and pulse until a dough begins to form.
Remove the dough from the food processor and transfer to a large piece of parchment. Put another piece of parchment over it. Roll the dough into a 1/8-inch-thick, 16×13-inch rectangle. Remove the top sheet of paper, trim the rough edges, and transfer the dough along with the bottom layer of parchment to a baking sheet.
With a pizza cutter, divide the dough into 2-inch squares (press just hard enough to cut the dough and not the paper). With a fork, prick each square 3 or 4 times. Bake until golden-brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool on the sheet.
Note: You can bake half a batch of dough and refrigerate or freeze the rest for later use. Divide the dough in two before rolling it, wrap one-half well, and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 week until ready to use again for a second batch of crackers. Take the dough out of the refrigerator or freezer at least a couple hours before you plan to bake so it will soften slightly.

I made these crackers to go with a white chocolate cheese ball, a combination of white chocolate & cream cheese rolled in toasted hazelnuts. A great pairing, especially with a glass of wine. Will make again.
Made these as part of a S'Mores dessert with brownies and homemade marshmallow cream I'm putting together. They tasted great. I love even store bought basic grahams. These were buttery with wonderful texture. Big difference! What isn't better homemade? I did not get the yield stated. When I rolled out the dough to the size of a half sheet pan (standard rimmed baking sheet) and baked I got about 20 full crackers. Maybe could have been a little thinner, but slightly thicker were good. There were some edges and incomplete crackers. I will crush those for topping. Rolling out the dough into a clean rectangle wasn't easy. The double parchment worked well. Need to try it again tomorrow and pre-shape the dough a bit from a ball into a rectangle. These are really good and its an easy recipe. A little more practice will make perfect. No comparison to store bought!
