Cheese Crackers

cheese crackers

Summer mezes fits perfect with these easy crackers. As topping I used sesame seeds, red chili flakes and fresh rosemary, but there is no reason not to try different ones; for example, sea salt, more cheese caraway, oregano, and … whatever you like!

You need

  • 200 g flour (1 1/2 cup)
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt (or more if necessary), I used Greek yogurt
  • 100 g cheddar cheese, finely grated (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Chili, to taste (or hot paprika)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Procedure

  1. I really simply combined all the ingredients and used the food processor until the dough came together. Add little more tablespoon yogurt if necessary.
  2. Take the dough (I made it in two portions) and roll it until you get a long snake about 3 cm thick.
  3. Make 3 millimeter thick slices and place them on the baking tray prepared with baking paper (this quantity makes two trays) , let 2 cm space between each piece (total about 50 pieces).
  4. Add toppings and press them in the dough with the back of tablespoon. This will make the pieces bigger and thinner (about 2 mm thick).
  5. Bake at 220°C / 425°F for about 15-20 minutes until they turn golden brown.
  6. Tranfer immediately on a wire rack to dry and cool down.
  7. If they are not dry enough place them shortly in the still lukewarm oven.

  1. I had some difficulty with the cooking times for this recipe. The first batch was burned to a crisp at 13 minutes so I put the second batch in for 4 minutes, turned them and cooked another 4 minutes. Very tasty!
