No Crackers. No Problem.

I’ve had some bad luck making crackers… CRACKERS, of all things. Too soggy, too burnt, too spicy — you name it and I’ve screwed it up… in cracker-form.

BUT tonight, I broke the cracker-curse. I found a very forgiving & simple recipe for crisp and tasty – not to mention QUICK – crackers.

If you’re craving cheese and crackers but only have the former, no fear, the latter is easier than you think.  Just a few basic ingredients will give you crispy crackly, perfectly spiced crackers in just 20 minutes!

Thank you to the kind people at TheKitchn, for the cracker-crave-quenching recipe* I’m talking about. It seems the messier you roll them, the more “artisanal” they look, which is just an added bonus.

I found they cooked faster than the recipe indicated: 9-10 minutes was just fine for mine, which were rolled out pretty thin (thinner dough = faster crackers!). My advice is to watch the oven (Great-British-Baking-Show-style) around the 7-8 minute mark, so you’re sure not to over bake them.

My favorite part of this recipe is that you can top it with whatever you like.  I topped mine with seams seeds, finishing salt, and caraway, to pair with a Chèvre cheese from the local goat farm we visited last weekend** — though you can easily customize these crackers to fit any cheese or dip you’re pairing them with.
