Homemade Whole Wheat Crackers
We were out of crackers, for the famous crackers and cheese, and I thought, "How hard can it be to make crackers?". So I looked online and found this website: http://appetizers-finger-food.suite101.com/article.cfm/how_to_make_crackers
Below is there recipe for crackers. IT IS SO EASY AND DELICIOUS! At the bottom are my suggested seasonings.
•2 Cups whole wheat flour
•1 tsp. baking powder
•1/2 tsp. salt
•2/3 Cup warm water
•1/3 cup olive oil
1.Preheat the oven to 400.
2.Lightly grease two large cookie sheets. Combine the dry ingredients, and then stir in the water, oil and mix until a smooth dough forms.
3.Divide the dough in half and flatten each half on a cookie sheet. Use a small rolling pin or even your fingers for a rustic, uneven look. Once the dough is spread thin, use a sharp knife or a pizza cutter to cut the dough into squares. The elasticity in the dough will make the crackers shrink slightly and pull away from each other; this makes them easy to bake without sticking together.
4.Brush lightly with an egg wash (one egg white and 2 tablespoons of water) or spray lightly with olive oil. (OPTIONAL)
5.Sprinkle with the topping of your choice. Experiment with your favorite flavors, or try one of these variations below.
6.Bake for 12-14 minutes until the crackers are golden and crispy.
