A simple, homemade cracker recipe filled with plenty of flavor.
- 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
- 2/3 cup + 2 tablespoons homemade granola
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup currants
- In the bowl of a food processor combine the whole wheat flour, salt and the butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse sand. Add 2/3 cup of the granola and pulse 1-2 times. Add the water a little at a time and pulse until ingredients come together in a ball.
- Remove the dough from the food processor and place on a lightly floured work surface. Gently knead in the currants and the 2 tablespoons granola and shape dough into a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 400’F. Cut three large sheets of parchment paper, big enough so that each piece will fit on a large sheet pan.
- Unwrap the dough and cut into quarters. Take one quarter of the dough and on a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough out into a circle, about 1/8″ thick. Transfer the circle to a piece of parchment and using a knife or a pizza wheel, cut into squares or other desired shape (I like 1 1/2 inch by 1 inch rectangles myself!). Continue the same process with the other 3 pieces of dough.
- Move the parchment with crackers onto a large sheet pan and place in the oven. Cook 6-8 minutes or until browned.
- Remove crackers from the pan and place them on a cooling rack. Continue the process with the remaining crackers.
- These crackers are tasty by themselves, but also wonderful when sprinkled with a little cinnamon and sugar before baking. The recipe is a good base for trying other flavors too. Add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg or cayenne. Or try adding more dried fruit or topping with parmesan cheese just before baking.
