It’ll Make You “Crackers”

In case you haven’t heard, I have a soft spot for cheese and crackers. Nothing major, but if you ask my better half, he’ll attest to the fact that often enough, my meal of the day will consist only of cheddar cheese and some crackers. Now, I know that this sounds pretty pathetic, but the beauty part of it is that I make my own crackers. Yep, that’s right, I make my own crackers to enjoy with my cheese. It might sound daunting to some, but this recipe couldn’t be easier. I put all my ingredients in my food processor and then roll it out with my Grandmere’s rolling pin (a very treasured Granger family heirloom that has been passed down through many generations). I hope that the next time you decide to indulge in some cheese eating, or even a bowl of tomato soup that deserves a trusty companion, you’ll muster up the time to cook off a batch of these bad boys.

Easy Peasy Crackers

  • 3C. all pupose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C. cold butter; cubbed
  • 1C. sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp sugar

Pulse the flour, baking powder, salt and butter in food processor until it becomes a coarse meal. Add in wet ingredients and quickly pulse until the dough comes together. On a floured work surface, roll out the dough until desired thickness and cut into any shape (I like long, narrow triangles).Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and cook in a 350 oven for about 20 minutes.

    Hmmm. Looks easy enough. I’ll have to give it a try. Nice to meet you, been reading for a while. I’m Jonathan Newell’s sister. He and Bev got married last weekend. Check out my blog to see some photos.
