    Anyone have any good cracker recipes? I've been using these two but would like some variety:

    3/4 c. flour
    1/4 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 c. butter, unmelted
    4 tbsp. buttermilk
    1/2 c. oatmeal
    2 tsp. honey
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1. First you want to blend the oatmeal.
    2. Then you can add in the next 4 ingredients with oatmeal. Blend.
    3. Now you want to cut in the butter and buttermilk and mix.
    4. Then roll with bread pin in a thin layer and cut small shapes.
    5. This needs to bake at 400 degrees for approx. 10 min.
    6. Cool and serve!

    2 cups Flour
    1 teaspoon Salt
    1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
    1/4 cup Butter
    1/2 cup Milk
    1 Large egg

    Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder into a bowl. Cut in the butter until very fine. Add the milk and egg and mix to make a stiff dough.

    Knead thoroughly and then roll the dough very thin. Cut into squares or rounds and place on lightly buttered cookie sheets. Prick the crackers with a fork and then bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, or until very lightly browned. If desired, crackers may be sprinkled with coarse salt.

    What about graham crackers...? I made these (two days ago) but I should have rolled them out a little thinner:

    Honey Graham Crackers Recipe

    • 1/3 cup milk
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 1-1/2 cups graham flour (whole wheat may be substituted)
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/3 cup butter
    • 1/4 cup shortening

    In a small bowl stir together milk and honey. Set milk mixture aside.

    In a large bowl stir together graham flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter and shortening till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center of flour mixture. Add milk mixture all at once. Using a fork, stir till mixture can be gathered into a ball. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by gently folding and pressing dough for 12 to 15 strokes or till dough is nearly smooth. Divide dough in half.

    Sprinkle surface with additional graham flour. Roll each half of dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Using a pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut dough into 2-inch squares. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Using the tines of a fork, prick crackers well. Bake in a 350-degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until done. Remove crackers from sheet and cool on a wire rack.

    Cinnamon Graham Crackers
    Prepare Honey Graham Crackers as directed above, except stir 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon6 into the flour mixture. After pricking the crackers, sprinkle crackers with a mixture of 3 Tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.

    Yield: 72 crackers

    I think there is also a chocolate version but I didn't have that written down. You can probably find it online.

    I like to use the pasta roller attachment on the kitchenaid instead of rolling them out. They come out nice and thin, then I lay them on the cookie sheet and use a pastry or pizza wheel to cut them.

    It is hard to eat crackers out of a box after having homemade ones.
