I was inspired to make some home made crackers after watching The Great British Bake Off.
One of the tests was to make biscuits. We call them crackers. I'd never thought about it before, but wanted to try it.
So I searched and found a recipe for Parmesan & Thyme Crackers.
When I made it, the dough came out too crumbly, so I aded one egg. That fixed it up.
Modified version of Blooming on Bainbridge's modified version of Barefoot Contessa's Parmesan & Thyme Crackers
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter at room temperature
2 ounces freshly grated Whole Foods Parmesan cheese
2 ounces freshly grated Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon water
coarse sea salt for sprinkling
Add grated cheese, thyme, salt and pepper to butter.
Add flour, water and egg.
Dump crumbly flour mixture onto floured surface.
Form into a log, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for one hour.
Remove and cut into circles, or if you can't make circles, rectangular-like shapes. ;-)
Bake at 350 for 22 minutes on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Cool on wire rack.
