Another Daring Bakers’ Challenge – Crackers and Crisp Flatbread!

Hello all! I’m back. I haven’t been able to bake anything for a while because I had finals (I know, terrible. In February, no less.) And then the Academy Awards. For those of you who don’t know, the Academy Awards are kind of a big deal in our family. As in, it’s Susie’s favorite holiday by a long shot. We all fill out ballots, but instead of winning money or a prize, we win a miniature figurine named Oscar. Unfortunately, I’ve lost TWO years in a row by HALF A POINT. It’s devastating. Clearly, I’m still recovering. Perhaps next year I should see more than one of the nominated movies.

 

Anyways, now that those two events are over, I’m back to the kitchen. Since it’s almost the end of the month, I thought I’d do the Daring Bakers’ Challenge!

 

Sarah from All Our Fingers in the Pie was our February 2013 Daring Bakers’ host and she challenges us to use our creativity in making our own Crisp Flatbreads and Crackers! :)

 

For this challenge, I decided to make two types of crackers – one regular and one gluten free. They’re really different but I think they both turned out really well. I hope you enjoy the recipes!

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and prepare pan with parchment paper
  • Mix together all dry ingredients
  • Add in water and olive oil, and mix with hands to combine. Start with 1/4 cup of water and add more as necessary. The dough should combine, but not be too dry.
  • Roll out dough to at least 1/8 inch thick (but it can be thinner)
  • Cut crackers into desired shape
  • Bake for about 15 minutes. Check often near the end, as you don’t want them to burn. It may take as little as 13 minutes, or as many as 18.
