making {crackers}


Recently I took a class with Ashley who authors Not Without Salt to learn a number of wonderful recipes for holiday treats.  I truly loved them all.  Today I wanted to share with you the recipe for the crackers we made.

Crackers are the basis for so many snacks and appetizers.  Around the holidays we consume a lot of crackers- most often with cheese.  Seeing as I love making ricotta, these crackers are the perfect snack under a dollop of creamy white ricotta.  The great thing about these crackers is that you can put anything on them- from sea salt and rosemary to seeds and herbs.

As for our house, my boys seem to prefer them right off the pizza stone, still warm and broken in pieces.

    I actually came over to read this thinking that you meant “Christmas crackers”….the kind with a little toy, a paper hat & a joke inside!! Do you even have those in the US, probably not?!

    These look good too tho ;)

      Simone & Kim,
      Did you know you can make your own “Christmas Crackers”? We have made them for the past 13 years or so… we make our own tissue paper hats, add a piece of candy, and a joke. To make the nice snapping sound we use a type of firecracker called a snap pop. They are so much fun and our teenaged boys enjoy them immensely! (in the past we made them for the youth at church as well)

    oh Kim, these sound delicious! We have no big plans for Christmas so I think we will make these… homemade crackers, sharp cheddar cheese, homemade sparkling cider and a session of board games sounds like a fine evening to me!
