Mrs J made some more doggie biscuits today. They looked and smelled great. I was a bit jealous of the dogs. That set me to searching about for a cracker recipe. I’ve been wanting to make some crackers for a good while and the luck of the dogs having such a good dog momma rubbed off on me today. Mrs J agreed to make the sesame crackers that I downloaded a recipe for.
As with most new things the first batch was a learning experience. They were just a bit too thick to crisp up nicely, or we didn’t give them long enough in the oven, or both. I gave them 20 minutes at 350+ degrees. They came out more cookie than cracker. A good flavor, though maybe a bit bland, I was sure we were on the right track. The second batch were pretty much the same thickness so I was determined to give them all the time they needed. In the end they were in there for a tad over thirty minutes. We also upped our game on the ingredients–we ground some sea salt over them, and Mrs J found some Mrs Dash herb seasoning that we sprinkled over them, too.
I did some additional recipe searching while the second batch was in the oven, and found a recipe that was nearly the same except they used some sesame oil in the dough instead of butter, and a bit less water. A comment on that post mentioned using a pasta machine to get the dough thinner and more uniform. We might try that next time. I have ordered some new cookie cutters, the plastic cap Mrs J used to cut the crackers out was not the best. A pretty good size, though.
