    • Make Your Own Saltine Crackers

      Copycat Saltine Cracker recipeCrackers 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!

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

        How many crackers will this batch make?

        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.
