Parmesan, Black Pepper, & Thyme Crackers
Simple, yet delicious homemade crackers with parmesan and herbs. These crackers would be great served with some wine or snacked on any time.
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3 ounces (about 1 1/4 cups) parmesan, grated
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme or rosemary leaves, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 50mins
Using the paddle attachment on a stand mixer, beat the butter until creamy. Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the parmesan cheese, flour, salt, thyme, and pepper, and beat until it clumps together into a ball, pulls away from the sides of the bowl, and few, if any, loose crumbs remain.
Wrap the log tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for 30 minutes, or until firm. While the dough chills, preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Slice the log into roughly 1/4 to 1/2-inch pieces (just make sure they're all the same thickness). Place the dough slices about an inch apart on the half-sheet pan and bake for 16 to 22 minutes (depending on their thickness), or until firm and golden brown.
