Thanks for the recipe! Do you have any suggestions for rolling out the dough this thin? I found that's the part I have the hardest time with when I try to make crackers.

Hi Patty, Sorry no suggestions other than it gets easier with time. I agree that it is the hardest part about making crackers. Good luck!

THANK YOU! I have been trying different cracker recipes but couldn't find a very good one for cheese crackers......yours is the BEST!! I did add some chives and salted the tops just a bit. They are excellent!

A tip for rolling out.....I use parchment. Plus, I found a hand held brayer at a thrift store.....I flatten the dough with my hand some and then go for it with the brayer. Always put a little flour on the dough while rolling...

Here is a link the brayer I use. They can be bought at artists stores.



PS...Can't wait to try your graham crackers!!

Thanks Judy! Thanks for the tip on the brayer! Emily

These are delicious! I use all whole grain flour (spelt) and rapadura for the sugar and they still taste almost exactly like wheat thins! Thanks for the recipe. I use a pastry roller to roll them out and that works great!

Thanks for stopping by and for the flour suggestion, we'll try it.

I have never made crackers before so this may be a simple question...Can you share how to store these and for how long.
