  • 3 cups white flour (I use bread flour)
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or melted butter
  • 1 cup water
  • Optional Seasonings: Sesame Seeds, Garlic Powder, Poppy Seeds, or Dill Weed
  • Optional: You can also add 1-1/4 cup grated cheese in a blender on "pulse" to crumble it and add to the dough while mixing the dough. This would give you cheesy crackers. Yummy!
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet or use parchment paper and set aside. Place the flour in a medium-sized bowl. Add the sugar, salt, water, and olive oil. Mix until it's ready to knead on the counter. It takes very little kneading. You mix, knead and roll out the dough. Easy peasy. Next, you roll out the dough in the shape of a circle, square, or rectangle as close as you can to 1/8 inch thick or less on a floured countertop. Now it's time to cut the dough in the desired shapes like diamonds, rectangles, or squares. Cut pieces with a knife or pizza cutter and place them on the cookie sheet. You will need to prick each cracker with a fork to stop the crackers from rising in the oven. Bake the crackers for 14-16 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. The crackers become crispier as they cool.
