Rather than sharing one of my own recipes I’ll direct you to these awesome graham crackers by Martha Stewart today. I had never made graham crackers myself until I baked these and I will never buy them from the store again, that’s how good they are!

I cut a little star out of cardboard and used it as a template to cut out the center of these guys with a knife but if you have an actual cookie cutter in that shape that would probably be a lot easier. I also baked the crackers a few minutes longer than the recipe states because I like them a little on the dark side. If you feel the urge you can substitute – you guessed it – pumpkin spice for the cinnamon, both version are excellent!

Food Photography and Styling: I wanted this photo to feel cozy and warm and at the same time somewhat outdoorsy and fall-like. To do that, I charred the marshmallows to give them a campfire-burned look and stuck them on twigs to make the connection to the outdoors. I put the paper underneath them to break up the surface visually and also to protect the wood from marshmallow goo. Because plain graham cracker squares tend to look a little boring I cut out the stars in the center.
