Lately my husband and I have been watching the Great British Bakeoff. Have you watched the show yet? I’ve been dying to do some baking and I finally decided to make some Savory Homemade Crackers. One of my goals for the New Year was to incorporate more healthy recipes, so no fancy cakes or desserts for me. Instead I decided to try my hand at making savory homemade crackers.

I’ve made crackers before. In fact one of our favorite recipes is a healthy cheese cracker, almost like homemade goldfish crackers. Figured making these crackers was a perfect activity for a cold winter day in the Pacific Northwest! The recipe is based on one of Paul Hollywood’s recipes. I just used different spices in my crackers. The measurements are in grams, but luckily I can set my scale to grams or pounds so the conversion was not hard. I used a heart cookie cutter so they were perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Homemade Savory Crackers

Ingredients:

375 grams of flour
1 tsp. salt
125 grams of butter, softened
2-4 Tbsp. water
2 medium eggs, beaten in separate bowls

Flavorings:

2 Tbsp. Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend (from Trader Joes)
40 grams grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. sun-dried tomato paste (just chop up sun-dried tomatoes to make paste) 
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds

Directions:

Put the flour, salt, butter, water and 1 beaten egg in to a bowl and mix well for five minutes. Divide the dough in half and add the Bagel Seasoning blend to one, and the cheese and tomato paste to the other. I made the tomato paste by using my mini Cuisinart to grind up some sun dried tomatoes.

Using a rolling pin, roll out each piece of dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/10 inch thick. Thinner is better. Place on a baking tray. Cover and refrigerate for thirty minutes.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Dust two large baking sheets with flour. Using a cookie cutter cut out 18 rounds from each ball of dough. I used a heart cookie cutter. Place the crackers on the baking tray. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle the cheese and tomato ones with sesame seeds.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and then transfer to a wire rack to cool. These homemade savory crackers may be served warm or cold.

I may not be cooking under the tent with Paul and Mary, but I was able to re-create these delicious crackers in my kitchen. You Can too! Roll the crackers out as think as possible, some of mine were a little thick but still tasty!

Hi Nancy!

Wendie and I are also fans of the British Bakeoff-we’ve tried of the recipes and went afar aspurchsimnag one Paul’s and one of Mary’s cookbooks. Haven’t looked for Pru as of yet-

I think the one thing that has changed our baking is we’ve switched over to weight measurements instead of volume. Our bakes have never been so good!

We did Clangers the other night (it’s on the blog) and it was a success. Now that we know the mechanics, we’ll experimenting with our own flavors-

Cheers!

WT,
We are now watching the Master Class of the British Baking Show which gives step by step instructions. If I can’t be out in the garden might as well watch cooking! 🙂 Using weight measurements is the way to go, much more precise! I did notice the Clangers on your blog and wondered if you were inspired by the British Baking show!

The Great British Bake Off is so popular in the UK! I was asked to audition for their very first series, but with our travels it didn’t work out. When I saw how competitive it was, I was really relieved!! Your crackers look so pretty, Nancy, and really delicious too. Sharing on the H&S Facebook page tomorrow. Thank you for your support of Hearth and Soul. Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

April,
That’s awesome that you were asked to audition! I don’t think I’d do well under that sort of pressure plus the TV cameras! I do enjoy recreating at home however! 🙂
