Chef Lane: C is for Cracker


My friend, the illustrious Dr. Stephanie S., posted a recipe for basic homemade crackers on Facebook.  I had exactly one cup of whole wheat flour sitting in my pantry, so I decided to give it a try.  Mmmm!

 

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and get a cookie sheet ready.  If it is non-stick, no worries.  Otherwise, give it a coat of cooking spray.

1 cup of flour
1/4 cup of water
3 tbs olive oil
3 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1 tsp garlic salt, ground with parsley
1/2 tsp chili powder
Knead the ingredients until dough forms, and is slightly sticky.
Roll out your dough (on a non-stick surface, or a surface prepped with cooking spray) to about 1/4 inch thickness, then cut into the shape of your choice.
Pop the cut crackers in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until crispy.
Remove from oven and enjoy!

Pretty tasty little wafers.  These would be good with hummus.  The basics are always the same: Flour, water, oil.  Mix up the flavor ingredients as you like to change up the taste.  Next time, I’m using rosemary!
