Parmesan sesame crackers.....yummy and great! I found this recipe when I ran out of crackers and thought there must be a recipe for crackers that are easy to make and yet delicious. This recipe really fits the category. It is definitely a keeper! In this photo, I did not sprinkle with cheese on top ( I forgot) and yet they still came out great:)
Parmesan Sesame Crackers
2 cups All-purpose flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
2/3 cup Warm water
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1 Egg white blended with 2 Tbs water
6 TBS Sesame seeds
3 TBS poppy seeds
1 /3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
These crackers are excellent served with salad, soup, cheese or spreads. Makes about 4 dozen. I usually mix in my parmesan and seeds into the dough. But you may do as you like.
Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease two 14x17-inch baking sheets. Combine flour, baking powder and salt, most of the seeds and cheese in large bowl. Stir in water and oil, mixing until smooth dough forms. Halve dough. Flatten 1 piece into large square directly on 1 prepared sheet. Cut into 2 3/4 x 3 1/4-inch pieces, leaving in place on baking sheet. Pierce all over with fork. Brush generously with egg white mixture. Sprinkle with extra cheese and seeds. Repeat with remaining half of dough. Bake until crackers are dry and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Recut if necessary. Cool on racks. Store crackers in airtight container. Bon Appetit.
