Salt-and-Pepper Crackers

Salt-and-Pepper Crackers

Why bake your own crackers? One reason might be to blow the socks off your guests. Another would be to know what a fresh-baked cracker tastes like: flavorful and floury, with bright sparks of salt and flecks of fresh black pepper throughout.

Prep Time 35 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour, plus more for rollingĀ 
  • 1 tablespoon sugarĀ 
  • About 1 tbsp. saltĀ 
  • About 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepperĀ 
  • 2 tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into small piecesĀ 
  • 2/3 cup milk

Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, 1 tbsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Add butter and rub with fingers to work it into the flour mixture until no discernible pieces remain. Stir in milk. (Or you can pulse flour, sugar, 1 tbsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper in a food processor to combine, add butter, pulse until no discernible pieces remain, and whirl in milk.) Turn mixture out onto a floured work surface and knead; form into a ball.

Step 2

Divide dough ball in half. Working with one half at a time, pat each into a rectangle. Roll rectangles paper-thin and transfer each to its own baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut lightly (not necessarily all the way through) into 2-in. squares. (Cut off uneven sides or simply have some uneven crackers.)

Step 3

Bake 10 minutes. Switch position of sheets and continue baking until dough is starting to brown but is still mostly white or golden, about 5 minutes. Let cool on pans. Break into crackers and serve.
