February 2013: Crisp Crackers and Flatbread

26. 2. 2013

This month, I decided to take the easy way out and made a recipe that we use all the time: curd crackers. The ingredient are simple and you can add any flavours you like.

250 grams margarine

250 grams curd

250 grams fine flour

+ baking powder, salt and herbs (I used powdered garlic and dried rosemary)

These are the basic ingredients. I prepared them in a bowl and let them get to room temperature.

I kneaded the dough in a stand mixer and then put it on a floured surface and kneaded it by hand. The curd was a little watery so I needed to knead some more flour into the dough. The dough should not be too sticky but still rather soft.

I rolled the dough to about 3mm thickness. I started with little hearts...

... which I egg-washed and sprinkled with chilli powder.

I also cut the dough into sticks, egg-washed, sprinkled with ground carroway seeds and salt...

... and twisted.

I was left with some dough scraps, which I kneaded together, rolled and sprinkled with grated cheese.

I cut it into squares and odd shapes.

 

Everything was baked at about 200 °C until the crackers were crispy, although I prefer mine slightly underbaked and chewy.

My favourite were the twisted sticks. The combination of carroway seeds and salt is a classical one and the sticks look great and taste even better. Crunch!
