just posting recipes for making my own recipes.

Goal for Monday.. make these crackers.

(make these into animal crackers!)
1 cup flour (can mix different flours)
1/2 tsp salt
Other additions
like herbs or seeds
2 tbsp. butter or neutral oil
Mix the ingredients together.

Then, add in 1/4 cup water and mix until it holds together but isn't sticky. Add more water as needed.

Then roll it out, score, and bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or until browned.


and soda crackers

Soda Crackers

You need:

1 teaspoon dry yeast
1 cup warm water
About 3 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda, dissolved in 1 tablespoon warm water
2 tablespoons buttermilk
4 teaspoons coarse salt

Stir the yeast into the warm water and let stand to dissolve for 5 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups of the flour to the mixture and beat well. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rest for 24 hours in a warm spot.

Add the shortening, salt, baking soda and buttermilk. Mix the dough well, turn onto a lightly floured board and knead for 1 minute. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. Resume kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic. Put the dough in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rest for 3 to 4 hours.

Place the dough on a lightly floured board and roll it into a thin rectangle, about 1/8-inch thick. The elasticity in the dough will work against you, but roll the dough out, using your weight firmly, pushing on the rolling pin; also use your hands to stretch it out.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Use ungreased cookie sheets. Dust the dough lightly with flour and then fold into thirds like a business letter. Turn the dough so a narrow end faces you and roll again, lightly dust with flour, fold again into thirds. Do this three times in all.

Divide the dough in half. Roll one half into a rectangle 1/8-inch thick or as thin as you can manage. Trim the edges so you have a neat rectangle. Lightly sprinkle salt evenly over the dough. Cut the dough into squares 1 1/2 by 2 inches. Prick each square with the tines of a fork several times.

Place the crackers on a cookie sheet, close but not touching. Bake for 7 minutes, turn over and bake for another 3 or 4 minutes. Cool your homemade crackers on wire racks.
