Mmmmm….Crackers February 24, 2011

Posted by boaktree in In the Kitchen....

If your kids are anything like mine, they love crackers.  Alot. 

In the name of thriftyness (and preservative free foods) I jumped online awhile ago looking for a recipe for whole wheat crackers.  This is what I found.  Not only are these crackers super cheap to make, they are also easy.  And they are really, really yummy.  They are a nice sturdy cracker, perfect for topping, or dipping in your favourite spread. Mmmmm.

Anyhow, the recipe is as follws.

1 3/4 cups of whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 cup water

salt for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350

Stir together the flour and salt.  Add the oil and water, mix until blended.  On a floured surface roll out the dough until it is about 1/8 inch or less thick. 

 Place the dough on an ungreased baking sheet and mark squares with a knife. Don’t cut all the way through.  Prick each square with a fork several times. Sprinkle with salt.  Bake 15-20 minutes until crackers are crisp and brown.  When crackers are cool, break them apart.  Voila!  Delicious homemade crackers. 

Good luck actually keeping them in your cupboard for more than a day though.  I can’t seem to keep my kids away from these, they don’t last long in our home.

My kids love helping to make these.  They don’t quite have the muscle power yet to roll the dough out thin enough, so I do that part.  But they love doing the rest.   And considering how quickly they eat them, it’s a good thing they are helping to make them!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
