Crackers with Fresh Rosemary

Rosemary Crackers There is one thing that I am really enjoying this summer and that is fresh rosemary. I have been using it in my breads, and beef, and it is an herb that is not only great in scent, but also in flavor. I thought I would try something new this week. As I sat back and watched my kids snack on pretty much anything that was in sight, there is something they kept coming back to; crackers. I checked my refrigerator to see what was in stock, and there was a variety of cheese, and what better than cheese and crackers. My goal was to make a cracker with fresh rosemary.

This proved to be really easy to make and overall takes about 30 minutes, from preparation to serving.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 2 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, and more to brush the top
  • Sea salt

To a mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients. With a spoon, or whisk, blend the dry ingredients. Make a well, or hole into the center of the mix, and into that put the water and oil. Start to mix until it forms a dough.

Now, remove the dough from the bowl and onto a board, knead the dough a few times, not too rough on this one. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. In the meantime, seperate the dough into 3 sections. To each ball, roll out into a 8 to 10 inch circle, square, or other fun shape. The shape does not really matter here because you will break them into rustic chips/cracker when they are finished cooking. Once you have the dough rolled out (go thin), brush to the top of the dough and lightly sprinkle sea salt on it. Place on your baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes or until golden brown. These are a great combination with cheese, especially a lighter cheese such as brie or camembert. Enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
