Crackers, huh? I love crackers!! I've made heart-shaped chive crackersPane Carasau, a traditional Sardinian flatbread; seeded garbanzo crackers; and homemade saltine crackers. Before I get to my recipe to today, though, here's the rest of the crew's cracker offerings.

Cheesy, Crunchy Mini Crackers

These are super fast as you combine everything in the food processor, roll them out, and bake for just a few minutes. They are cheesy, crunchy, and delicious. You can use these as you would oyster crackers and float them in a soup; but we just snacked on them by the handful.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 t smoked paprika
  • 2 C shredded cheese (I used a combination of parmesan, asiago, and aged mozzarella)
  • 1/2 C butter, cubed
  • 1 to 2 T vodka (or you can use water)
  • Also needed: parchment paper, rolling pin, mini cutters (or you can just cut into small squares)

Procedure

Place flour, spices, cheese, and butter in the bowl of a food processor. Cover and pulse until evenly blended. Add vodka or water until a stiff dough forms. Turn the dough into a bowl and press it into a ball. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.

While the dough chills, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Roll dough to about 1/8" thickness on a lightly floured surface or between two sheets of lightly floured parchment paper.


Cut into desired shapes with a small cookie cutter or cut basic squares approximately 1" in size. Gently transfer shapes to prepared baking sheet using a thin spatula. For larger crackers, use the tip of a chopstick or skewer to make a small hole in center of each cracker. For these tiny ones, I didn't do that.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until the bottoms just begin to brown. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

I floated these in some homemade soup the other day. Delicious!

  1. I need a tiny cutter like yours, Camilla! When I made oyster crackers a while back, I ended up using the open side of a decorating tip to cut them but then they lacked the scalloped edge. I love your flavors! My kind of cracker!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
