Homemade Crackers!

These have been a huge hit...they won't be quite as crisp as store bought, but you get to control the salt, fat, and quality of ingredients.

Preheat oven to 400

I used the dough blade in my food processor to make this much easier, I imagine a stand mixer would work as well.

1-1 1/2 cup of any fine grain flour oat, AP, whole wheat, corn, etc
2-3 tbls oil 3+ tbls of water
salt and other other spices

Pulse till it comes together in a ball, add water or flour as needed to get the consistency. Roll super thin, approximately 1/8th of a inch and either cut into shapes or cook as is then break apart once baked. 

I made three varieties, one with garlic powder, onion powder and oregano, one with basil and tomato powder, and one with a splash of vanilla, sugar, and less salt (ala wheat thins).

The smaller the piece the less time it takes to bake. I baked them off in sheets and broke apart, they took about 20 minutes in this format, if you cut into shapes, they should take less time so start at about 10 minutes there. The less water/oil in the recipe the crisper a cracker you're going to get since it'll be a drier dough. Pictures to come soon.
