Homemade Sesame Crackers

Honestly, I've been holding onto this recipe for over a year. A year! But yesterday seemed like the day to get crackerin' (sorry) and make these crunchy little crackers. It's super easy and tastes a heck of a lot better than buying a box of sesame crackers in the store. Let's do this.

Easy Homemade Sesame Crackers
Adapted from NY Times

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 TB olive oil
1 TB toasted sesame oil (or another TB of olive oil)
5 TB water

step one: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine flour, seeds and salt. Then, add the oils and water, kneading until all is combined well.

step two: On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thick. (I didn't have a rolling pin, so I rolled out by hand, but this takes longer, and the crackers will look more rustic.) Using a shot glass, cookie cutters or a knife, cut out circles, squares and shapes in the size of cracker you desire. Place onto the baking sheets with at least 1/2 inch in-between. (The crackers won't get much bigger than they are as dough.)

step three: Bake for 20 minutes, until slightly brown, switching the pans halfway in between (front to back and top to middle).

Enjoy these nutty, crunchy little gems!

Happy eating!
