I spied this cute cracker recipe on Facebook yesterday and thought they’d be a hit here but as usual I couldn’t leave well enough alone so I mixed it up a bit.
As much as possible I do home made. Yes, it is work. Yes, it means I spend time organising and cooking and cleaning up but I think it’s important to know what’s going in my kids mouths.
I posted the pic on Instagram and received requests for the recipe so here tis, due to popular demand.
Mr 5 helped me make these and chose the cookie cutters we would use.
1 cup wholemeal flour
3 tablespoons cold butter, chopped
A good handful of Parmesan cheese – maybe two thirds of a cup but hey, whatever!
1 good shake from the packet of sesame seeds – maybe a tablespoon and a bit
1 good shake from the packet of chia seeds – about same as sesame seeds
2 tablespoons cold water
Blitz flour and butter in food processor until it becomes bread-crumb like. Add Parmesan and seeds and give a quick blitz. Add water and process until it becomes a ball, add more water little by little if needed.
Flatten by hand between two pieces of baking paper and refrigerate for 10 mins or so.
Roll out between paper until a few millimetres thick and cut with cookie cutters of your choice. The thinner they are the crunchier but don’t go too thin or they’ll burn.
Bake in a 170 degree oven for around 12 – 15 minutes and try not to eat the whole lot at once! Half have already been consumed here!
