Starr Ridge Homemade Grahams

A few months after discovering Tiny Trapeze Graham Crackers, we happened upon another worthy, but entirely different, graham cracker. Starr Ridge Cinnamon Grahams were a finalist for
Best Baked Good at the 2005 specialty food industry awards.

A very restrained style of graham cracker, the Starr Ridge graham cracker was a lighter-density cookie with a subtle graham flavor. It was also much less sweet than Tiny Trapeze. We say “was,” because the creator, Allen & Cowley Specialty Foods of Phoenix, closed in 2008. Urban Oven of Tempe, Arizona purchased the Starr Ridge Crackers name, and is now producing a similar line of crackers and cookies. But it has not yet revived the glorious grahams.

We’ll take a moment to wax poetic over the Starr Ridge grahams, with the hopes that they’ll be back.

Gone (temporarily, we hope) but not forgotten.

Made in two flavors, Honey Graham was more of a cracker and could be served with double crème and triple crème cheeses, as wheatmeal biscuits are. Cinnamon Graham had a sprinkling of sugar on top, sweetening it up for the cookie plate. Both were an interesting contrast for people who wanted a quality graham cracker but were cowed by the powerhouse Tiny Trapeze cookie. Both would crumble easily into a crust.

The ingredients were unsalted butter, whole wheat pastry flour, graham flour, unbleached flour, milk, light brown sugar, honey, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Let’s hope that we see them back soon.
