Description

Who knew homemade crackers were so easy? Not this girl!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Basil
  • ¾ cups Finely Grated Parmesan Cheese (use The Real Stuff, Please!)
  • 4 Tablespoons Softened Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Heavy Cream

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt, pepper and basil. Stir in grated cheese. Blend softened butter into dry ingredients until well incorporated (no big lumps). Stir in heavy cream one tablespoon at a time until larger clumps start coming together. Mixture should come together into a dough ball that isn’t sticky.

Put dough onto a lightly floured board and roll it out to about 1/4-1/8″ thick. Cut out the dough into any desired shapes and place on prepared baking sheet. Prick each with fork and bake 10-12 minutes or until edges start to brown. Cool crackers on baking sheet and serve.

How big did you cut these approximately? They look so good. :)

These were very easy and equally tasty. A small modification: I ended up adding a slightly more heavy cream than called for in order to get the dough to form.
