This homemade cracker recipe comes to use from Dish Cooking Studio in Toronto, Canada. They are flavored heavily with thyme and pepper and pair wonderfully with salad, soup or your favorite soft cheese. We made these crackers to garnish the Salade Lyonnaisse and it was delicious! It is much easier than you think to make homemade crackers and if you have fussy children at home you could easily leave out the herbs and pepper and replaced it was sneaky health items like ground flax seeds. However, you do it, you will be surprised just how easy this cracker recipe is.

This is a printable recipe.
1 Cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
2 sprigs thyme
1 pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
6 Tablespoons whole milk
1/2 egg white, beaten
Sea salt for topping
Preheat oven to 375F. Blend flour, pepper, thyme, sugar, and salt in the food processor.
Pour in the olive oil and pules a few times to make sure it comes together.
With the food processor still on, pour in the milk and let blend until a loose ball is formed.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and split into 4 sections. Roll out into a rectangle as thinly and evenly as you possibly can.
Move to a lightly greased cookie sheet and dab a little egg wash onto the dough with a pastry brush and sprinkle delicious sea salt on top.
Bake at 375F for 10-15 minutes. Check it at 10 and make sure the cracker is crispy and browning a bit, but not getting burnt.
Let crackers cool on a baking rack and once cool, break into as many pieces as you'd like and add to your salad for crunchiness.
