Homemade Crackers

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
When I come across a recipe that works and allows me to make a homemade version of a processed food, I get really excited!!   I have been trying to make snack food for my children to save money and for health reasons, but when it came to crackers I could never quite get it right.  BUT I have a recipe that works and I believe it is because of my pasta roller!!  I could never get the dough thin enough to make a cracker, it always seemed to come out like a pita bread kind of consistency.   The pasta roller allows the dough to get really thin without the work of rolling it out with a rolling pin.  

I credit myfoodstoragecookbook.com again for her great post on making crackers.  I will link you to her post because I would just be reiterating the same thing if I did a post too.  Follow her recipe exactly for great results. I added cheese powder to one batch and made plain crackers with the other half.  You can add anything you would like to make your crackers your own.  My kids loved the cheese flavored crackers the best because they tasted just like Cheese-its!! 

 {If you don't have a pasta roller you can still try a rolling pin, but you will have to roll the dough pretty thin, 1/8" or less.  I recommend rolling your dough out onto your cookie sheet so you can just cut the dough and cook it.  That way you won't have to transfer the super-thin dough from a counter to the cookie sheet.}
