  2. 5 min.Crackers : Photo of step #2

    Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).

    Roll out the dough thinly (2 or 3 mm) using a rolling pin. The ideal width is about 15 cm (6 inches).

    This the trickiest stage, as it is quite difficult to roll out...

    Then cut again lengthways.

    Note: a rolling pizza cutter is ideal for this.

    This should give you crackers of around 1 x 5 cm.

    Arrange them on a baking sheet as you go.

    For a glossier finish, you can moisten the crackers with a brush dipped in water then sprinkle them with salt.

    Bake for around 10 minutes, watching for coloration. Do not let them brown too much.

Remarks:

You can vary these crackers by adding seeds to the dough (sesame, millet, poppy) or a little grated cheese (Comté, Gruyère, Parmesan).

A tip to make life easier: if you have a pasta machine, it is ideal for rolling the dough thinly and evenly.
