Crackers

Another easy, tasty enjoyable treat resulting from a quick baking escapade are water crackers. Flour, baking soda and cold butter are rubbed together until it resembles breadcrumbs (like when making pastry) then a little water is added until the dough comes together.

The dough gets rolled into a sheet and using a cookie cutter, circles are made and punctured with the tines of a fork. The main flavoring could be anything as simple as sea salt, probably with a little cracked pepper if you like (such as this one).



A dash of dried herbs like basil or thyme could also make a lot of difference.

Best served with cheese I think! Areas of improvement for this batch, I would say, would be the thickness of the dough, but it's a personal option whether you'd want it extra thin or extra thick. Squares would be nice too! These ones turned out to be quite similar apparently (taste-wise) to Boland's Cream Crackers

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
