A form or mold for thin, uniform crackers?

Is there such a thing as a form or mold for making uniform crackers?
I thought about using a tortilla press but I thought that would be too thin.

The problem is that I am making crackers with a nut base rather than flour, so they are not as easy to roll/press with a pin.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. How about using two same-size cake or pie pans? Put the dough in one and press with the other. Should work.

      That is a good idea. I could use circles of parchment to help with sticking.

    2. When I make cheddar pecan wafers, I form the dough into a log and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Next day slice and bake. MUCH EASIER, and better results IMHO.

      1. I have vintage heart-shaped refrigerator cookie molds (from old bridge sets), and have used these for crackers as well.

        1. I've thought about making crackers, too. I'm wondering if I can use a pasta roller to make them uniform. Has anyone done that? I've put off making it because I didn't want to deal w/ rolling the dough that flat. Come to think of it, can you make mini pie crusts and roll it flat in a pasta roller? It would make mini-quiches so much easier.

          1. Using a pasta machine works well.
