Recipe | "Quick and Easy, Rustic, Homemade Crackers" by Alicia

"These are the easiest, and quickest crackers to make when you run out or are craving a good ole fashion carb fix! They are super tasty and the recipe can be tweaked to pair with your favorite dip! The recipe makes a light snack for 2 adults...or 1 really hungry adult. You will need a rolling pin and a very non-stick cookie sheet." Main ingredients are:
  • 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour + 2 Tbsp. or so...
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil (Try flavored oil for a boost of flavor...I like herb flavored!)
  • 3 Tbsp. Room Temp Water.
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt + Sprinkle of Salt for the End
PLUS: Then you can get creative with your flavors...here are some of my favorite variants.

Version 1) Optional for Flavor:
  • 1/2 tsp. Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. Flax Seeds

Version 2) Optional for Flavor:
  • 1/2 tsp. Dill Weed
  • 1/8 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. Black Pepper
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper

Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk together the main ingredients into a thick paste. Then, add in your flavors/spices and mix well. Then, with a fork, stir in the rest of your flour until the mixture forms into a ball of dough. 

On a floured board, turn out the dough, and with a sprinkle of flour kneed the dough for a minute or so until the dough's consistency isn't super sticky. With a rolling pin, begin to roll out the dough, sprinkling the dough with flour when needed to keep from sticking. 

Important: The thinner you roll out the dough, the crispier the crackers will be. Ideally, you want your dough to be about 1/8 of an inch thick.

Finally, transfer the rolled out dough to the "very non-stick" cookie sheet. Using a bench scrapper or a sharp knife, perforate the dough into bite-size crackers. Bake (dough will be in sheet form) at 400 degrees for 5-7 mins. Watch the crackers CLOSELY...they can burn quickly, especially if you have rolled out the dough very thinly. Typically, you want your crackers to still be cream colored, with light brown edges. When you take them out, sprinkle them generously with salt.

Let the crackers cool completely before breaking them up, and enjoying them with your favorite cheese or dip! Yum!!
