Making Crackers

Homemade crackers

Mix the flour, water and oil

Add the cheese

Roll out the crackers

Swiss garlic, swiss pepper, and cheddar pecan crackers

These crackers are light and delicious! And very easy to make. Here is the recipe:

Homemade Crackers

3 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 c water
1/3 c oil
1 1/2 c shredded cheese
sea salt

Mix the flour and salt together in a bowl. If you want to add any herbs or pepper add it now (eg. 1 tsp garlic, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp dill, 1 tsp oregano, etc.)
Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour in the water and oil. You can use different kinds of oil for more flavor. I used Walnut oil. Stir with a wooden spoon. Then mix the cheese in by hand. Roll out very thin on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. I found it easier to roll out strips of dough than to roll out the whole mass.
Bake for 10 minutes (or until brown) at 350. Break into pieces to serve. Great with soup!
I added pecans to one batch - you can add 1/2 c of any kind of nuts for more crunch.

You'll be amazed at how simple and addictive these are.
