Easy Crackers

Never buy mass-produced crackers again.


  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water (with more on standby if necessary)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except the water.
  3. Add 1/4 cup water and mix until it holds together. The dough should not be sticky.
  4. Flour the work surface and rolling pin. Roll out the dough until it is between 1/8 and 1/16 inch thick, turning often to avoid sticking.
  5. Cut into individual crackers.
  6. Place on a parchment-covered cookie sheet and pierce with a fork.
  7. Bake about 10 minutes, or until crisp.
  8. Remove to a rack to cool.


You can use one type of flour of a combination. One of my favorites is a mix of 1/4 cup whole wheat and 3/4 cup all-purpose white flour. But use what you have or suits your fancy.

If you want a saltier taste, add the salt to the top of the cracker, after scoring.
