Black River Preschool Crackers
2 c flour (we use Pamela’s brand gluten free baking mix with almond meal) any flour will work
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp xanthan gum (no need to use with regular flour)
½ tsp salt
2/3 c warm water, more if needed, but add slowly to get the right consistency
1/3 c olive oil or less
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine dry ingredients. Stir in water and oil and mix until a smooth dough forms. Roll dough flat, make crackers using small cookie cutters, or cut them into shapes with a butter knife.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned- longer for crispier crackers. Watch them carefully!
Add a bit of honey, maple syrup or sugar to make a sweet cracker.
Use an egg or water wash on the crackers and sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon or any baking sprinkles.
Add black pepper, garlic powder, rosemary or any of your favorite spices to the dough to make a flavorful savory cracker.
Use an egg or water wash and sprinkle the crackers with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, kosher salt or your favorite flavorful dried herb.
