SOURDOUGH

HERB-PARM CRACKERS

If you've been baking sourdough for sometime now, you probably have an abundance of starter and you may be wondering... what in the heck do I do with all of this? Open a bakery?? LOL, only kidding but seriously it's gotten to the point where I've got gallons of it in my frig! Luckily, this recipe uses a decent amount per batch so it helps use the discard without having to throw it out AND these crackers, you guys, are seriously THE BEST! Enjoy!

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350, prepare 2 baking sheets by lining each with parchment paper, then place that paper on a cutting board and lightly flour it. 

STEP 2: In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients together. The dough will form a ball and will not be sticky.

STEP 3: Split the dough into 2 equal proportions and then place one on the floured parchment paper and the other you can keep in the bowl until needed. 

STEP 4: Lightly flour your rolling pin and the top of the dough. Working with one dough at a time, roll out the dough until it’s very thin about 1/16-1/8 inch thick. (TIP: If dough sticks to rolling pin, re-flour as needed.)

STEP 5: Repeat entire process with second dough. Once both are rolled out thin, lightly brush with olive oil & then use a pastry wheel, pizza cutter or knife to cut long ways and then across to create the cracker squares. Puncture each square with a fork & lightly sprinkle with the salt. Carefully pick up the parchment paper and transfer back to the baking sheet.

STEP 6: Bake for 20-35 minutes or until it’s golden brown and the crackers in the inner part of the dough are not soft.

 

Enjoy!
