I made these today as a lunch treat for my sis and we both enjoyed them very much with some plain cream cheese. They have a lovely oaten flavour with a slight hint of sweetness (I reduced the sugar to 1tbs, but you could still taste it well enough). I would have never thought that adding some sugar to a biscuit/cracker recipe, would be a nice addition, but it surely is. I love how versatile this recipe is and will surely be making it again with some other spices added to it or maybe even turning it into a cookie by using the full 2tbs of sugar and adding some cinnamon to the batter. This comes together so quickly and easily that I no longer have an excuse to buy my crackers. :) Thanks so much for sharing another wonderful recipe with us, bluemoon! I luv it! Made and reviewed for 1-2-3-Hit Wonders Tag Game March 2009. Oh just a note: I didnt have time to chill my dough, but it worked out fine nonetheless.
Excellent cracker with just a hint of sweetness. I served mine with hummus. Made for 1-2-3 Tag.
The problem with biscuits and crackers is that one may not have a lot of calories or fat, but who eats just one. (For those concerned with the nutritionals, note that those stated here include 100g of blue cheese distributed among the servings.) I decided to try and reduce the fat and calories further by using light butter (1/2 the fat and calories of the regular stuff). The problem is light butter has a higher moister content, so I had to offset that with an additional 3 tablespoons of flour and using about 1/2 the water indicated. Also instead of an egg wash, I did an egg white wash. The effort was well worth it as I ended up with a crispy little biscuit/cracker that was flaky as well. They were so good, I could barely wait the full 15 minutes until the fully cooled. Served mine with a non-fat yogurt cheese well seasoned to taste quite like Boursin. What a delightful treat! Thanks bluemoon.
