Homemade Crackers

More at The Realistic Housewife


Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup Wheat Flour
  • 3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour (I use unbleached) 
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 6 Tablespoons Chilled Butter (cut into pieces and throw in freezer for a few minutes)
  • 1/3 Cup Water (or more if kneaded <--- funny typo :)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla
Directions:
  1. Cut butter and place in freezer
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  3. Sift dry ingredients into food processor (or you can ignore my sifting ways)
  4. Pulse until mixture forms into small clumps (or cut in using fork or pastry cutter into a mixing bowl) and transfer to mixing bowl
  5. Add liquids and knead slightly (it only seemed to take a couple times of forming and kneading the ball out to mix)
  6. Grab a baseball sized chunk and roll out the dough onto pizza stone or parchment paper, making sure to use plenty of flour (use either kind) - You really can't go "too thin" on these
  7. Cut using pizza or cookie cutter - (weird ends just get gobbled up, no problem!) and transfer to cookie sheet if you're not doing it on the pizza stone
  8. Dust very lightly with sea salt (I do one gentle dash) and bake for 10-12 minutes (this is the only tricky part -the edges may burn and you may want to play around with which rack you put them on - Keep close watch!)
