Whole Wheat Crackers

For the appetizer portion of the fancy cooking club, I made a successful attempt at crackers.  I have also been inspired by the Great British Bake Off where they made crackers that needed to snap (and these definitely snap).  I read many articles and reviews all of which made it look very difficult to conquer, but this recipe is extremely easy.  The hardest part is you cannot taste the flavor as it develops while baking.  I made three successful batches.

Base recipeIMG_3293

  • 2/3C wheat flour
  • 2/3C AP flour
  • 1.5t salt
  • 1.5t baking powder
  • 3T olive oil
  • 3/4C water
  • Add in 2/3C of dried herbs, sesame seeds, flax seeds etc. to flavor.

Mix dough and split into 8 pieces with dough cutter and rest for 15 minutes. Set oven to 450 degrees and bake 5-6 minutes on the first side and 2-3 minutes on the second.

I rarely find a need for sesame seeds, but my favorite twist so far includes a sesame seed mix (Simply Organic’s “garlic n’ herb) which includes lemon peel, sesame seeds, garlic , pepper, onion, parsley, and oregano.IMG_3350

These paired perfectly with the hummus and baba ghanoush and a plate of veggies!
