Who doesn’t love a good, crunchy, salty cracker?! We love crackers and we do not discriminate, we like the grain free Simple Mills crackers, the awesome water crackers, and those seedy crackers that you can just eat plain they are that good.
All good crackers share a few commonalities; their salt ratio is on point, they have a great crunch but not too crunchy where it disintegrates in your mouth, and they are the perfect size for laying on a wedge of cheese or dipping into hummus.
Tyler and I were making a snack plate one day and we realized we had literally no crackers in our house, hard to believe as we always find somethinggg. We were being too lazy to run to the store and this was also during a moment when I was in a big “make it all from scratch phase” ( that phase doesn’t last long let me tell ya). I embarked on making my own batch of crackers.
It was honestly, so much easier than I thought, a few ingredients, a little mixing, and into the oven they went to puff up and get nice and toasty. The hardest part of the whole thing was waiting when they came out of the oven to cool down enough to gobble them up!
3 cups of flour ( whole wheat or regular)
1 cup of water
2 teaspoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
4 tablespoons of EVOO
everything but the bagel seasoning or simply salt and pepper
Place the flour, salt, and sugar into a large bowl and whisk together.
Pour in the water and EVOO and mix all together until a ball forms.
Place a large piece of parchment paper on the counter and place your bowl of dough on the paper. Place another piece of parchment on top and then using a rolling pin, roll the cracker dough until it is about an 1/8 of an inch thin.
Put the rolled out dough onto a cookie sheet and then using a knife cut into 1 inch squares ( it should make roughly 50ish crackers) sprinkle the top with the seasoning of your choice and press them in with your fingers.
Place into the oven at 400 degrees and cook for 15-20 minutes, watching carefully so as not to burn them.
