Good Cracker Recipes (From Scratch)

Anyone have a tried and true cracker recipe (or several) that they are willing to share? I would like to start making them from scratch so I can start using sprouted flour in them. Im sure there are some in the NT cookbook, but I'm looking to try conventional recipes that I can convert (hopefully) and have a variety of recipes. THanks in advance!

Subbing! These are something I have always wanted to try but have been intimidated to for some reason!

Not exactly a cracker, but an awesome substitute for cheezits. I made them and they are excellent. More cheddar and less salty than store bought.

Re: Good Cracker Recipes (From Scratch)

Here are some on my list to try. I haven't tried them yet but the joy in my kitchen cheez it is 3rd on my list right now- right behind cinnamon toast crunch I am making today and animal crackers I am making tomorrow. I have tried a few things from the Joy in my kitchen blog and we have liked all of them. I use her "mom's whole wheat bread" as our sandwich bread recipe. The recipes tend to be a bit healthier then what a basic google search might pull up.

You are all wrong. THESE are the best crackers ever. Sub out the paprika for 1/4tsp of onion powder and garlic powder and if you really wanna do something nice for your tastebuds, throw in a handful of shredded cheddar. I make double batches of these every time I make them and I literally cannot keep a batch around more than 24-36hours. My kids jump up and down when they come into the house after school and smell them baking. My parents hear I'm making them and my mom starts asking if she can come over and see the kids. Everyone I make them for LOVES them. Just make them. You know yo u want to. In fact I'm making a double batch today(quadruple if the kids let me) so come on over and try a few. I promise you'll leave begging for a jar of crackers to take with you.

Re: Good Cracker Recipes (From Scratch)

Oh and tiips:


-if you don't have a rolling pin, an old glass peanut butter or salsa jar works EPIC! I like peanut butter jars because they are a little longer and less wide under my hand.

-the thinner you roll, the crispier they get. but soemtimes it's pretty awesome to let them get a little thicker.

-watch them CAREFULLY in the oven. They will go from lightly browned needing a little more time to blackened in less than a minute, I swear. you HAVE to be like a hawk with these. I recommend it be a naptime recipe.

-use a pizza cutter(the rolling kind) to cut them. It's faster, it's easier, and your kids won't care about the shape once they taste them. Mine is a cruddy dollar store model that I struggle with to cut pizza but works AWESOME on crackers.

-don't poke holes in the dough. I don't. I never have. They get a little puffier but the little air bubbles inside are so light and flaky and totally yum.

-make it the first time with all white flour or half white, half wheat. It changes the consistency. I've make it with all wheat ONCE and the kids ate it but didn't like how "grainy" it was. I make it half and half now and hope that the fact that it's from scratch and not storebought cancels out the evil I'm doing by giving them refined bleached non-organic white flour. And these are kids that have never eaten white bread before and rarely eat white flour pasta. So that tells you something.

My favorite bread recipe just 'cause I'm in the mood to share: http://crunchycatholicmomma.blogspot...aking-day.html

Good stuff. When you roll it out, you COULD if you were so inclined, add some cinnamon and sugar and raisins. It makes a yummy cinnamon raisin bread that my mom loves. She helps me out every Monday and drives my daughter to school so I can volunteer at another daughter's school so I bring her some warm homemade bread or a batch of crackers or granola bars as payment for her time and for getting up in the morning since she's retired. This is her favorite bread recipe and she's a tough customer.

I have ran across that one before. We'd have to sub the butter with oil and I wasn't sure how well that would turn out. Might give it a try anyway just because I'd like to have the added oats. We've made cinnamon swirl bread a couple of times- always a big hit.
