I have yet to meet a kiddie that doesn’t like crackers, even the fussiest of eaters seem unable to resist the crunchy, cheesy delights. Unfortunately many of the shop brought ones have high levels of salt, and various other unpleasant ingredients.
With The Monster being crackers about crackers I decided I needed a super simple, delicious and healthy recipe for making them at home. After a few test recipes, this insanely easy recipe was created. When tested on The Monster, his playmates and their mama’s there wasn’t one left, always a good sign!
- 1 cup wholemeal flour
- 3/4 cup mature cheddar (grated)
- 1 /4 cup Parmesan (grated)
- 1 tablespoon of dried rosemary
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup olive oil
Re-heat the oven to be 180 degrees. Place the flour, rosemary and cheeses into a food processor and give it a quick blitz to combine the ingredients. Mix the water and olive oil and slowly pour into the flour, and cheese mix while the processor is on a low setting. Once the dough comes together, tip it onto a floured surface. Roll until thin (about 2.5mm) use cookie cutters to cut the dough into any shapes you choose. Line a baking sheet with grease proof paper and lay the crackers on the paper. Bake for about 12 mins or until golden brown and crisp at the edges. Allow to cool before eating.
