Homemade Crackers

Homemade crackers are simple to make and require very few ingredients!  You could probably make them right now!  They’re so delicious and I love being able to know exactly what’s in my crackers.  They’ve been excellent to have around to snack on, or to serve with a homemade cheese ball and grapes at a party!  Here is the recipe:

Homemade Crackers:

  • 3 cups of flour (I usually split this between 2 kinds.  I’ve done whole wheat and white, and I’ve also done kamut and spelt.  Both work well!)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup water or milk
  • Extra sea salt for sprinkling

In a large bowl combine together the flours and salt.  Then, add the butter and water/milk.  Mix until dough sticks together and is easy to handle.  You will need to knead the dough for a bit to get this to happen (5-10 mins. in my experience).  Roll it out 1/8″ thick directly onto your cooking sheet (I use a cooking stone which works nicely).  Then, slice into crackers using a pizza cutter.  Lightly sprinkle with sea salt and press it into the dough.  Place the crackers in the oven at 400F for 20-25 minutes until crispy.  Keep an eye on them because they can go from crispy to burned really fast!!

  7. These crackers look great. I am also trying to make more homemade items for my family and share them on my blog.
    I was wondering if you preheat your pizza stone before cooking the crackers?
    I’m definitely going to add you to my reader.
