I'm a decent cook. I may go so far as to say a good cook, but I don't want to get prideful here.
"Kait," I thought to myself last week as I munched on some delicious crackers, "You could totally make crackers."
Yes I could, I agreed with myself.
So as soon as I got home from work I looked up a recipe on foodnetwork.com with the best ratings. This rarely has failed me.
I attempted Cracked pepper and parmesan crackers...sounds delish right? I begin mixing the butter and flour and freshly grated parmesan but the dough was hardly dough at all--more like floury crumbs. Hmm... Well I got it to stick together, froze it and cut it in little rounds and popped it in the oven.
My first time making something I usually follow recipes to a T. Or close to a T. Maybe an S. You get my point. After I've made it according to the recipe and if it's good enough, I'll keep it around and change it up a bit.
Back to the crackers. I slice them thinly, lay them on a baking sheet and put them in for exactly how long the recipe says--22 minutes.
It was like burnt pepper shortbread.
When Matt came home and tried them he had a first.
He spit them out.
Then it was funny.
And that sums up my experiment of making crackers at home.
Anyone got any better recipes?
