Thyme-Sea Salt Crackers

These homemade crackers are decidedly light and crispy. An addictive snack on their own, they also pair well with a sharp white cheddar. —Jessica Wirth, Charlotte, North Carolina

  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea or kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, whisk flours and salt. Gradually add water and 1/4 cup oil, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough into 3 portions.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 1-1/2-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Prick each cracker with a fork; brush lightly with remaining oil. Mix thyme and sea salt; sprinkle over crackers.
  3. Bake 9-11 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.

      I feel I underbaked these a bit, but that's not the recipe's fault. They were lightly browned, but once they cooled, they weren't crisp. Next time, I will bake them to more of an even golden color, and perhaps leave them in a low oven with the door open a crack for about 20 minutes after baking, to get rid of the rest of the moisture. And I might add more salt on top -- for something called "salt crackers" they were slightly under-seasoned.

      Crunchy, salty crackers. If I knew years ago how easy it was make crackers, geez!I'll be making these again! With as popular as it is to serve Charcuterie, these are a MUST-HAVE!

      Tasty, quick, and easy. I did not have fresh thyme, so I used about 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried, and added it to the flour mixture before adding the water and oil. I think they might be better with less thyme and/or with the thyme on top as written.
