Sometimes routine life gets soooo boring and you feel like you want to do something different. Especially bakewise.. Past few days I have baked several sweet and savoury breads that I wanted to bake something else that I had not done for a long time. Then I found and adapted the yummy easy to put together crackers which had cheese and also walnuts in them.
Shredded cheese : 1 cup
All Purpose Flour:1/3 cup
Oat Flour/Brown Rice Flour: 1/3 cup
Whole Wheat Flour: 1/3 cup
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: 3 tbsp
Ice cold Water: almost 2 tbsp
Salt: 3/4 tsp
Spice/Seasoning of your choice: 1/4-3/4 tsp
Walnuts: 8 tbsp
Pulse walnuts coarsely in the mixer and add in cheese, flours, oil, water, salt and seasoning. Process until mix is soft and sticks together when pressed between fingers. Cover and chill for an 1 hour to overnight. You can replace the oat/rice flour with wheat flour if needed.
Preheat the oven to 375F and line baking sheets with foil or parchment.
Take out the dough and roll out within parchement to 1/8" thick rectangle on the sheet. Cut into 3/4" squares and poke hole in the middle of each square with the other end of a skewer.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they start browning at the edges.
A very easy and simple recipe. You can play around with the flours and get different flours. Safe for beginners and obviously a refreshing change from routine. You can have these for anytime or all the time if you are unmindful of the 'cheesy' calories.
