I’ve spent the past week marking exams, essays, and projects. I’m on a (self-imposed) strict deadline, so the work is long, concentrated, and often dull. In an effort to keep sane, the marking is of course broken up by slightly more relaxing activities — cooking/baking of course being one of them. Last Sunday morning, I wanted to try something new. Lacking anything in the house to eat with my hummus, I decided to try these crackers. The recipe comes from this book, which I borrowed from a friend a little while ago.
I’d never made crackers before and for some reason thought it would be rather simple. They took a lot longer than I anticipated. Once the initial dough is made, you have to cut it in two and then roll each piece out very thinly and bake it for 10-12 minutes. I ended up having to do them in four batches instead of the two the recipe suggested because they wouldn’t fit onto my baking sheet.
I don’t think the crackers are something I will make again as they were very time-consuming. In order to be worth it I’d have to double or triple the batch.
