I love making savory crackers any day over cookies. These crackers are my favorite, wheat, flakey, flavorful thing to munch on for any occasion. They are especially great topped with sea salt, pepper, or rosemary. —Xcskier20

What You'll Need
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup rye flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup paremesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Add butter, olive oil, and cheese to a food processor. Pulse to combine. Meanwhile combine flour, salt, and baking powder in a seperate bowl.
  3. Add in the flour to the butter mixture and pulse to form small crumbles. Continually add in milk and tablespoon at a time until the mixture sticks together (you may need slightly more or less milk depending on what flour you are using).
  4. Roll out crackers to a 1/4 in thick on a floured surface. Cut crackers with a pastry wheel or pizza cutter into 1x1 in squares and transfer to a baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, but watch closely! The crackers go from uncooked to brown fast. Remove when just browned around the edges.

I tried these yesterday and had the bright idea to add 1/2c parsley in - which ended up contributing too much moisture to the cracker making the dough very very delicate and difficult to roll. I also subbed whole wheat flour for the AP. They still baked up beautifully though and had a nice salt level. I'll be trying these again without the herb add-in. Thank!

These sound wonderful! I have a question: I don't have any rye flour on hand, just all-purpose and barley flours. Do you think this recipe would work well using those two flours? (I've never used rye flour, so not sure if I'm asking a dumb question, haha). These would be wonderful with the Christmas gifts I'm planning!

Sorry for the delay. I was quite caught up in Christmas gifts too! If you still have time to make them, I would say that barely flour or any whole wheat type flour should work just fine. Please let me know how they turn out for you!
