Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Install the dough blade in the XL Precision Processor Bowl. Place all ingredients except water in bowl. Install the lid, then select DOUGH.

  • Step 3

    When program is complete, add 1 tablespoon of cold water to the dough, select PULSE, and process until the dough is solid and soft, adding extra water as needed.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle flour on to a cutting board covered in parchment paper and place dough on top. Flatten the dough into a thick layer. Then use a rolling pin to evenly shape the dough into a 1/16-inch thick rectangle. Once rolled, use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut into 1-inch squares. (Optional: Use a fork to create design on dough)

  • Step 5

    Transfer the cut crackers to the parchment-lined baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes.

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, allow crackers to cool for 15 minutes. Serve or store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
