Inspired by Cheese

Cheese and crackers are a perfect compliment to any table for any reason. I always like to think of a really basic snack that everyone loves and then step it up a notch. So instead of just basic cheese and crackers, I’m serving Kaukauna® Cheese Balls and Cheese Logs with homemade Rosemary and Olive Oil Crackers. 

Yummmmm.

No Ordinary Cracker

This Rosemary and Olive Oil Cracker Recipe is not an ordinary cracker, yet it’s simple and a perfect base for creamy, flavorful Kaukauna® cheese. You begin by mixing up the dough and forming it into a ball to rest on the counter:

After the dough has rested for about ten minutes, you’ll cut it into four pieces and roll each piece out on a floured surface.

I try to roll my cracker dough very, very thin. Think tortilla thin. If you roll your crackers thicker, they will take a bit longer to bake and get crispy in the oven.

Rosemary and Olive Oil Cracker Recipe

  • Author: Carissa Shaw for Mom Needs Chocolate
  • Prep Time: 20
  • Cook Time: 90
  • Total Time: 1 hour 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup cold water

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour, rosemary, pepper, salt, and sugar until well combined. Add the olive oil and water and mix well.

3. Form the dough into a ball and set aside to rest for 10 minutes.

4. Cut the dough into four equal pieces. On a floured surface, roll each piece out to a very thin sheet (as thin as possible).

5. Transfer each sheet of dough to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 450 for about 4 minutes. Flip each cracker sheet and bake for an additional 4 minutes, until golden brown edges appear. NOTE: the length of baking will depend on how thin the dough is. Be sure to watch the crackers very carefully as they cook to avoid burning. If your crackers are a bit thick, you’ll need to bake them an additional minute or two on each side.

6. Turn the oven off then remove the cracker sheets from the oven and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes. Break the sheets into your desired size of crackers and return them to the baking sheet.

7. Place the crackers on the baking sheet into the warm oven (be sure it is off) for about 30-60 minutes (depending on the thickness of the crackers) to get crispy. The crackers will be crisp and golden brown when they are ready.

    I have never made crackers. This would be better than all those holiday cookies that I eat too many of.

    This looks like something I’d crave during my pregnancy. Cheese and crackers is one of my weaknesses.
