Homemade Crackers!

When you’ve got the munchies, it’s rarely ever for something soft and sweet like ice cream or brownies. That would be classified more as a craving. No, the munchies almost always happen when you’re in the mood for something crunchy – something you can really chomp on, not just chew.

That’s what makes this recipe for homemade garlic bread crackers so perfect. What you get is not so much a cracker per se as it is a crunchy garlic bread stick in the shape of a cracker. They really satisfy the urge to hear that wonderfully loud sound as you chomp down and they’re really easy to make. In fact, there are only six ingredients in this recipe for homemade crackers. Give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup white flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic, (the squeeze bottle kind)
  • Dash salt

Instructions for making your own crackers

  1. Combine 1 cup of the flour, ½ cup of the cornmeal, and the salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the water, oil, and garlic and stir with a wooden spoon.
  3. Add the remaining flour and cornmeal and continue stirring to incorporate as much as you can.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured counter top and knead it for about five minutes. You can knead the dough simply by repeatedly pulling it and then folding it back on top of itself and pressing down with the heel of your hand.
  5. Roll the dough into a long log and then cut it into slices (about ½ an inch thick). Then cut each slice in half.
  6. Roll each small piece of dough into a ball and press it flat with your fingertips. Don’t worry if it’s not a perfect circle – it will still taste just as good.
  7. Place each cracker onto a greased baking sheet – since they won’t spread as they cook, get as many as you can fit onto the sheet.
  8. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until the crackers are golden brown.
  9. Remove, let cool, and enjoy!

      They definitely are something you can make as a family. Pressing the dough between your fingers to flatten it out is kind of like playing with your food :)
