• Make Your Own Saltine Crackers

    Crackers are notoriously simple to make and the kids will will enjoy helping make their own snack crackers.

    You'll Need:
    4 c flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    3/4 c shortening
    1 1/3 c milk
    salt to taste


    Mix flour, baking powder and shortening; add milk an blend well.
    Form a ball of dough and cut into four pieces.

    Roll dough out very thin.

    Cut with a cookie cutter Or use pastry wheel with crinkled edges.

    Place on cookie sheet. Prick with a fork 4-5 times (or, if you want them to look like
    their storebought counterparts, you can poke the holes with a shish-kebab stick) and sprinkle with salt or other seasonings if you'd like varying flavors, BBQ seasoning, Chives, garlic salt, sundried tomato & garlic, etc.

    Bake at 375 degrees 8 to 10 minutes or until golden (watch crackers carefully so they don't burn).

    Cool & Enjoy. These are lovely if you fill them with grape jelly!

      Can you use half wheat and half regular flour for a wheat cracker?

      Yes, but you might need to add an additional TBS of Milk for easier rolling.

      I didn't like these, they came out too floury and didn't brown well. Also, you have to roll them paper thin in order to get them to be crispy.
