Homemade crackers are extremely easy to make and the possible variations are endless.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
- 3 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon salt, plus additional for top
- 3 tablespoons grated onion
- 3 tablespoons chopped mixed herbs, such as thyme and chives
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1 egg white, whisked
- 1 tablespoon seeds, such as sesame or poppy
- Preheat the oven to 450˚F.
- Combine the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, butter and salt in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low speed until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the onion, herbs, and milk; mix until just combined--do not overwork the dough.
- Roll out the dough into a 1/8-inch-thick rectangle on lightly floured parchment paper. Brush the top with egg white and sprinkle with the seeds and some salt.
- Transfer the dough and parchment to a baking sheet and cut into 2-by-3-inch rectangles.
- Bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes.
