Homemade Crackers Again.

I like to make crackers. I try different spices and try to perfect them. These turned out really good!!!
4 to 4 1/2 cups flour (I used 3 cups of soft wheat and the rest hard wheat)
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup butter
1 cup milk
1/2 to 1 tsp. sea salt or real salt
Preheat oven to 375
I combined the baking powder with 4 cups of flour. I mixed in the butter, milk and salt. I had to add the other 1/2 cup of flour to make a dough I could work with. I made a big ball and then divided it into 4 pieces. I wanted to try different times in the oven, etc. Take one dough section and roll it our VERY thin. I did mine on a stone. Then cut into the shapes you want and prick several times with a fork. Sprinkle the tops with salt. The first piece I did at 10 mins. It was OK, but they were just a tad bit soft. When I tried to put some of my cheese spread on one, it broke. The next batch I put in for about 14 mins. That was pretty good, but the outside edges got a bit too done. I put the next batch in for about 12 mins. and they are great. They are so easy and you can do whatever shapes you like.

    If you'd like to try the 3 column look, I'd be willing to set it up for you. You wouldn't lose anything. ;o) Just let me know if you'd like to try it.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Marci,
    Sorry to ask such a simple question (but I really am still learning) – what's the soft wheat compared to hard wheat. I know there's red and white wheat berries but I don't have it all figured out yet (which is best for what). Are there other grains that qualify as hard or soft (like rye or spelt, etc.) Thanks ahead of time!
    love, teresa

  3. Thanks for posting this recipe. I've wondered about making home-made crackers, just haven't taken the time to search for recipes.

    Love your blog, Marci!

  4. Hi Marci,

    Thanks for sharing. I will have to try your recipe. I have a tried and true recipe I make every week. It is gluten and dairy free and they are AWESOME… Nothing better than all homemade food… We are so spoiled that when we have to eat out or eat processed foods, we actually get sick. So thankful for our lifestyle… Love reading your posts and LOVE LOVE my Lilla Rose hair pieces… They are the best hair clips I have ever found and I have used a LOT… God bless you and yours.
