Easy Homemade Flatbread Crackers
I love these tasty homemade crackers alongside soup.
Dovetailing Tip: For tomorrow's lunch, mix a can of tuna, mayonnaise, and chopped celery together. Take these flatbread crackers, along with the tuna salad for a yummy, easy lunch
|1 1/2 cups||all purpose flour|
|2 teaspoons||fresh herbs of choice|
|1/4 teaspoon||freshly ground black pepper (more or less to taste)|
|2 tablespoons||olive oil|
|1/2 cup||cold water|
|alouette le bon dip or le petite fromage for serving|
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Pulse the flour, herbs, pepper, salt, sugar, and olive oil in the food processor until evenly distributed.
Add the water and pulse just until the dough starts to stick together (about 10 seconds). Remove the dough, press together gently with your hands to form a single ball, and cut into four pieces. Let the dough rest for about ten minutes.
Roll out each individual piece of dough as thin as you possibly can. If the dough starts to shrink up, let it rest a little longer. You want the dough to get very, very thin. Once it’s rolled, place it on a piece of parchment paper and transfer to a baking sheet.
Bake for 4-5 minutes, but check periodically to make sure it’s not getting too brown - flip each cracker piece and bake another 4-5 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the crackers sit in the oven for 1-2 hours to really dry out and get crispy.
Break into pieces and serve with your favorite dip and a glass of wine for a perfect snack or happy hour treat!
