Has anyone made their own saltines? I'm looking for a good recipe/technique to give a try.

    I have these flagged, but haven't actually made them yet. I do make other crackers and the method in that post looks correct to me.


    If you make them, please post your results.

      There is a great recipe in one of Alton Brown's books.

        I think this would get you awfully, awfully close: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2008/0... These are the Smitten Kitchen rosemary flatbreads.

        I've made them, and they are crisp like saltines, and have a little bit of bubble to them like saltines. Of course, you'd replace the topping with a little sea salt, and you'd have to cut them (ravioli cutter?) and put holes in them (fork? toothpick?? yikes. time consuming) to get them to look like the "real thing."

        But they are super-quick, and tasty even if they aren't exactly like what you want.

            I have a cracker cutter that I purchased from King Arthur Flour a few years back. It is rectangular, about the size of the small section of a clubhouse cracker, and has a plunger that puts dimples/holes in the surface. Ingenious!!

            Have I used it? No...but I keep meaning to!

            King Arthur doesn't seem to have it now but I found one just like it on amazon. Hope this link works. If not, search for "cracker tea biscuit cutter press stamp"
