This is a simple recipe for delicious and healthy crackers.
You will need:
320g whole-wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
50g powdered sugar
150g butter cut in small cubes
Preheat oven to 390 degrees F (200° C) Combine the two flours with the sugar, the salt and the butter in a large bowl. Add the yoghurt and work by hand (or a food processor) until the mixture comes together. Remove from the bowl or food processor onto a lightly floured surface. Work the dough into a ball and refrigerate for at least for an hour.After the dough cooled down, roll it out on a well floured surface to a thickness about 1/8 inch (3 mm). Use a cookie cutter (as you can see it on the pictures I used a ladybird form :)) or cut it to 2 inch (5cm) squares. Carefully put them onto a non stick baking sheet.
Bake them for about 8 minutes, look out, because they can burn easily, so when the edges are golden brown take the out and let them cool down on a rack.Served them plain or with some jam (like some home made fig jam).
All right, and now some variations you may like:
- you can use 50g honey instead of the sugar
- add a teaspoon cinnamon
- add just a teaspoon of sugar, you can have these crackers with salad's or cheese
- add just a teaspoon of sugar, decrease the amount of butter to the half and replace it with grated cheese
- add 50g chopped walnuts
Bon appétit! :)
