Homemade Salt & Pepper Crackers

If there is one thing I love… CRACKERS. Salty, crunchy. I could sit down and eat a whole box in one sitting… but there are never many in a box! Seems like a waste of box, huh?

Get your flour in bulk and you will can make enough crackers to last forever. These are SO tasty and my go to cracker recipe as of late.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour

  • 1 tsp sea salt

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

  • 1 ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil

  • ½ cup water

  • extra sea salt for topping if desired

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

  2. Combine flour, salt, and sugar in a bowl, whisk to combine.

  3. Stir in water and oil, stir until fully combined. If the dough is still too dry, add 1 tbsp of water at a time until it forms a ball but is not too sticky.

  4. Place dough out onto a lightly floured piece of parchment paper.

  5. Roll dough until it is about ⅛ the of an inch thick. Add flour as needed to prevent it from sticking.

  6. Trim the edges. Roll the trimmings the same way.

  7. Cut the dough into small squares using a sharp knife. Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper. Use a fork to prick each square a few times.

  8. Transfer the dough, still on the parchment paper, onto a baking sheet and place it in the oven. Immediately reduce heat to 425.

  9. Bake for 12-17 minutes, of until crackers are starting to become golden.

  10. Allow them to cool and then store them in a very air tight container. If any moisture gets in, they will become stale and hard!
