Basic Cracker Recipe

A simple cracker that you can personalize to your favorite taste.  We made two batches, basil/sea salt and Parmesan cheese, both equally tasty.  The flavors and flavor combinations these could be made it are endless.  When adding a spice use a teaspoon or two and if you add a cheese use about a 1/4 of a cup.  Anything sprinkled on top, like the sea salt, lightly press into the dough before cutting.   

Basic Cracker Recipe

2 cups of plain flour - or mix an match whatever flour combinations you like
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons softened butter
approximately 1 cup of milk - I used goat milk because tis' the season and I have more than I know what to do with so I am adding it in everywhere.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In the food processor mix the flour, salt and butter until well blended.   Mix in any flavor you want here.  Add the milk until the dough is soft but not sticky.  I never got a full cup in either batch we made before it was getting sticky.   

Divide the dough into a couple parts and roll very, very thin ungreased cookie sheets.  Press in the topping here ~ sea salt, cracked pepper, poppy seeds, etc.

Use a pizza cutter to cut into crackers and prick each cracker with a fork two or three times.

Bake for 15 - 25 minutes depending on how thin they are.  These look undone one minute and too brown the next so watch them closely near the end.
