Cornmeal Crackers

•May 20, 2010 • Leave a Comment

These are some yummy crackers that are easy peasy to make. My three-year-old can devour these in minutes.

1 cup fine corn meal

1 cup spelt flour (whole wheat flour may be substituted)

1/2 tsp. sea salt plus more for sprinkling

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/3 cup of melted butter (olive or coconut oil may be substituted)

1/2 cup buttermilk

Sift dry ingredients together in a medium bow. Add buttermilk and butter (or oil) and stir until a loose ball of dough is formed. Dump out dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll out into a very thin rectangle (1/16inch). Transfer to a large baking sheet and take off the top sheet of parchment paper. Cut crackers into desired shape with a knife. I personally make diamonds, but you could make squares, rectangles or even use a cookie cutter for fun. Prick each cracker with a fork. Bake for about 12 minutes in a 350° F oven. Turn oven off and let crackers cool with the oven so they become quite crispy. Take out and enjoy! These can be stored in a tin for about a week if they last that long! Makes between three and four dozen.

Welcome to my new blog! I’d like to thank you for your interest in stopping by.

This blog was born out of my passion for cooking. I like healthy, old-fashioned home cooking. I create most of the recipes I use and of the ones I replicate, I find I am always tweaking and changing this or that. Cooking is really a hobby for me, but fits well in my life as a housewife and mother.

I hope you find something you like and check back often for updates.

Blessings,

Kate
