James and I had some friends over for dinner the other day, and is there ever a better excuse to make your own crackers? These are perfect for cheese and dips, as they are only very lightly salted. I also like rolling them out in big pieces—saved a lot of time, and I think it's a neat look. This recipe is exceptionally easy, the crackers taste great, and they look lovely; I already have a second batch of dough in the fridge, waiting to be rolled.
Sesame Seed Crackers
(Adapted from Whole Living; makes 6 large crackers)
- 163 grams whole wheat flour (I used a mix of whole wheat bread flour and spelt flour)
- 54 grams sesame seeds
- 3 grams fine salt (I'd add a few grams more if you plan to eat them plain)
- 48 grams olive oil
- 90 grams water
- honey/water wash
- 5 grams honey
- 15 grams water
1. Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and water, and mix until combined.
2. Divide dough into 6 pieces—about 60 grams each.
3. On a floured surface, roll each piece to 1/8" thick. Transfer to baking tray and brush with honey/water wash—sprinkle with seeds.
4. Prick each cracker several times with a fork, then bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
