Please share your favorite crispy cracker recipe

Don't really have one that is TNT.
Miss crispy crackers to go with tuna salad, pate and
other things like that.

Would be appreciative.

I don't do crackers, but I do crisps...
  • Parmesan crisps. Place a round silicone mat on your microwave turntable, add 7 small mounds of shredded Parmesan cheese. Nuke for 60 to 90 seconds. They'll come out malleable, but will crisp up after a minute or so.
  • Cheese crisps. Use drier cheese slices, like Sargento's Colby Jack or Pepper Jack. NO processed cheeses. Cut the slices into either four strips or four squares, and position on a silicone baking sheet on a cookie sheet. I can get six slices (24 crisps) on mine. Then bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 400 degrees. Add spices if you like.
  • Nacho chips. Take a low carb Lavash Bread or tortilla and cut up into chip-sized pieces, spray on some olive oil, add some spices, then bake for 4 to 6 minutes.
  • Pepperoni crisps. Put a paper towel on a paper plate, half on and half off. On the plate half, put pizza pepperoni. Fold over the paper towel so the pepperoni doesn't splatter around. Pop in the microwave for 30 to 40 seconds. Crisp as a chip! Great on salads.

If you have "Low-Carbing Among Friends - Volume 2" my recipe is on page 316.



BUTTERY SESAME CRACKERS
3 ounces almond flour, 3/4 cup
2 teaspoons granular Splenda
1 egg white
3/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
3 teaspoons untoasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons butter, softened

Mix all of the ingredients well in a small bowl. Chill the dough about 30 minutes. Drop the dough by 1/4 teaspoons onto a parchment-lined 12x17" baking sheet making 24 little piles leaving at least an inch between them. Pick the pieces of dough up one at a time and very gently roll into balls. Cover the dough with plastic wrap (you can use a small piece and move it around as needed) and take a baking powder can, that has about an 1/8" rim around the bottom, and press down firmly over each ball of dough. Be sure to press all the way down to the baking sheet. Peel off the plastic wrap and repeat until all the crackers have been shaped. Prick them with a fork.

Bake at 325║ for 17-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature or freeze for longer storage.

Makes 24 crackers

The Almond Thins one is really good - too good for me, I just won't leave them alone until they're all gone!

But the easiest one, IMHO, is to buy the tray of "cracker cut" cheeses at Costco - there are four varieties of cheese cut into perfect little rectangles - and then put them on parchment lined baking sheets and bake at 350* til they're crispy to your liking. Space them out on the parchment before baking, they do have a tendency to spread a bit.

Thanks to all who posted their cracker recipe.
Yesterday I tried Linda's Sesame Crackers and they
came out very good. The baking powder can idea to
shape them and thin them out was excellent. They
were golden brown and crisp. I froze what was left and
they came out crisp right from the freezer. Very pleased,
thanks Linda. Now I'll go see your new cracker recipe
SunnyK'sGirl. Thanks all.

Oh, no wheat...In that case I was very pleased to read your last post about making Linda's Sesame crackers. They are a real favorite, and yes! the baking can is a great way to quickly make them thin and uniform. Hmmm...I think I'll make some for the Bunco group this month, and see if anyone asks about them.

Help me as I am an CostCo. addict as well.
I am still using the paper clips that I purchased some 20 years ago when they
first opened. My MIL said OMG these are a lifetime purchase. I am still
using them as stocking stuffers. Keep me outta dere.

Barbo, have you tried Portia's egg white crackers? They are wheat free, taste good, and are as crisp as a potato chip. Hmmm...I feel a batch coming on soon!
