Parmesan & Thyme Crackers

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.
