Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Crumble into the butter, mixing with a fork. Add the milk. Mix until the dough holds together. Roll out to a thickness of about 1/16th inch. Cut crackers with cookie cutter, using very little flour. Place on greased cookie sheet or parchment paper lined sheet Prick all over with a fork. Sprinkle lightly with desired seasoning 10. Bake at 425 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until nicely browned. Cool completely before putting into tightly closed container. For the flavors, I like to use a sugar and cinnamon mixture for sweet crackers or this spice called Zahatar for a savory flavor. If you can't find the Zahatar then another idea would be to use some onion or garlic powder mixed with a little sea salt to taste. The sprinkle toppings are endless so just use your imagination and have fun! You can use a variety of cookie cutters for fun shapes or just cut them into squares with a knife if you don't have any on hand. Also I prefer to use the parchment paper lined sheet opposed to the greased cookie sheet.

  • I have been making homemade crackers for years to serve with corn and clam chowder. My family loves them compared to store bought. They just taste so fresh. Even though I plan on putting them in a tight tin, they never make it there. They all go every time I make them. No leftovers here.
