I love all sorts of crackers and I recently came across a cracker recipe that caught my attention….A Mega-cracker?! Wow…I was thrilled to try it! The following recipe makes crisp large sized crackers that look lovely as an addition to any bread basket. They go wonderfully well with dips , soft cheeses, hummus or even with eggplant dip. Hope you enjoy…
- 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2/3 cup toasted sesame seeds or a blend of your favorite small seeds( I used raw sesame and poppy seeds)
- 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 2 TBS olive oil
- 1 cup cool water
If you have a baking stone be sure to use it (that is what I used). Just preheat the stone as well. It will make the crispiest crackers. (If you do not have a baking stone, bake these on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet set on the middle rack of your oven. Just increase your baking time by a couple more minutes on each side).
3. Remove the crackers from the oven as soon as they are brown and transfer to a rack to cool. Store crackers in an airtight container.
