Easy homemade saltine crackers

  Crackers are a hit in our family. My kids love them, we could eat them with peanut butter, cheese, deli meat, with soups. Oh could we eat them. I like this recipe, a lot!  I enjoy making things from scratch as I know what ingredients are being used, we can customize it to our liking. With crackers we can make all kinds of shapes just by using cookie cutters to shape them.  you can add your venting holes in any pattern you would like and you can also add color!

                          Easy home made saltine crackers:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp + another 1/2 tsp salt for topping
  • 6 tbsp cold unsalted butter + 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup water

  • Heat oven to 400   (you can use a food processor or go by hand)

  • Put the flour, baking powder, sugar, and 1/2 tsp of salt into a large bowl and mix well.
  • Add Cold butter in small portions and mix together well.
  • Add vegetable oil and mix
  • add water in small portions and mix, th edough should start to form a ball.

  • Use cookie cutters to make your crackers
