Crackers (Edie)

Make up about 12 cups mix of just about any combination of flours – I have them in the freezer and use whatever happens to be there:  whole wheat, spelt, kamut, oats, barley, millet, quinoa, rye, corn, rice, etc.  I have tried teff but found it a bit bitter.  
add 1 cup ground flax seeds, 1 cup sesame seeds, 1 tbsp baking powder and 2 tsp salt.  Mix well and store in the freezer.
Take 2 cups of the flour mix  
add 1/4 cup of olive oil and enough hot water to make 1 cup.  I have used 1 cup of grated cheese, about 1/4 cup of pesto, or crushed rosemary, or ground pepper to flavour the mix.  This is a place you can experiment with – I thought about balsalmic vinegar, other herbs, garlic etc.  but have not tried.
The dough will be quite soft – if it is too sticky, add a bit more flour
divide in about thirds, and on a well floured surface roll out till it is as thin as you can get it.  prick with a fork, sprinkle with salt if you want, or grate parmesan on top and roll in.  I use a pizza roller to cut into squares.
Put on a cookie sheet, and bake around 10 minutes at 350.  This time may differ according to what your oven is like.  You want to have the crackers crisp but not burnt – a balance that needs careful watching – in my oven the outside crackers cook faster so I take them off first.
Here is a photo of the dough:

  1. Thank you for posting the recipe! My goal for the month is to try both new recipes from our meeting. Thanks for the inspiration everyone…

  2. This blog is amazing I will be making the pumpkin pudding and for sure the crackers. Thanks Everyone Liz

  3. well I had to make the crackers after last night. I used fresh milled spelt, quinoa, and barley as well as my pesto and chia seeds. Sarah helped to roll them and prick them with a fork (and eat the dough) and then we brought them to Owen’s kindergarden and shared at lunch (teacher loved them)… p.s. Sarah didn’t eat much lunch 🙂
