Homemade Water Crackers

Does anybody have a recipe for decent, homemade water crackers (add-ins like black pepper or sesame optional)

  1. There are so many awesome water crackers out there...Wellington, Carrs...but if you must make them...

    3 cups flour, 1 tbl. salt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 1/2 c. water.

    Put the flour, salt, garlic powder and pepper in a food processor and process for fifteen seconds. While processing, add water in a thin continuous stream and when all the water is added, run the machine for 10 seconds more.

    Roll out dough ask thinly as you can onto parchment paper. Transfer parchment paper to a cookie sheet (this recipe makes about six cookie sheets worth; you can reuse the parchment). Preheat oven to 450. When hot, bake crackers for 5 minutes or until crispy.
    Before going into oven, you can top with more spices if you want.

    1. There's several threads from a while back that attest to my absolute favorite recipe. I disagree with the other poster that there are options on the market that are just as good: plus people are always amazed that you made your own.

      you have to have a bit of fat in them or they just won't be as good.
