Avoid some processed foods and taste some fresh, homemade crackers without all those additives and preservatives.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl.
  3. Add brown sugar and butter and cut into flour with pastry blender or 2 knives.
  4. Add milk gradually, tossing with fork to moisten evenly. Add a few drops more milk if mix seems dry. It should not stick to the bowl or your hands.
  5. Divide dough into 4 pieces and press each into a ball and flatten slightly.
  6. Place each cake of dough between 2 pieces of wax paper and roll with rolling pin to about 3/16 inch thickness.
  7. Peel off top piece of wax paper and flip dough over onto ungreased cookie or pizza sheet.
  8. Cut into squares or any shape you like. A pizza cutter is good for this.
  9. Prick all over with a fork, then bake at 375 degrees until lightly browned, about 8-10 minutes Watch closely because crackers brown quickly. If the crackers on the outside brown before the center, remove the outer crackers and continue to bake the rest.
  10. VARIATIONS: For variety, you can add herbs to the dough, or sprinkle crackers with poppy, caraway or sesame seeds before baking.

These were pretty bland. Very healthy recipe, but next time I will add a lil something.

Great crackers! I added 1 Tbs fresh rosemary that I had chopped in the food processor and they thurned out great. Also instead of brown sugar I used 1 Tbs honey. They would also be good with just 1 tsp salt and next time I make these I will be trying them with olive oil instead of butter for a healthier cracker! Thanks for the recipe, this will become a staple in our home!!
