These crackers are really cheap, easy to make and taste great.
Making cracker dough is very similar to pie crust and is a great way to improve your skills at making pastry.
- 2 cups – 2 tbsp unbleached white flour
- 2 tbsp corn meal
- 1 tsp dried rosemary crumbled into fine pieces
- 3/4 tsp sugar
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 4 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup hot water
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients together. Cut butter into flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add water slowly until a rough dough forms. You may not need the entire half cup. Gently knead dough for a minute into a smooth ball. Cut dough into four pieces and let rest 10 minutes. On a well-floured surface roll out one piece of dough until it is paper thin and the counter can be seen through it. Transfer dough to a greased baking sheet. Slice sheet of dough with a pizza cutter into small squares. Bake until crackers are light brown on the edges and crispy, about 10 minutes. Continue to roll out dough and bake until all crackers are done. Let cool on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container.
