Soda Crackers

Soda Crackers from your Pantry.

You are probably wondering, why would anyone bother to make soda crackers when you can buy a box with four sleeves of crackers.  No I am not crazy.  (Really I’m not).  If only you could reach into the above picture and taste how delicious these crackers are.

Cross my heart they really do taste  just like soda crackers, only Better and Fresher.  Very easy to make and they are baked not fried.  Make the dough the night before.  Roll out the next morning or afternoon.  Bake 10 minutes, you’re done.

Sprinkle salt on top or leave them unsalted.  Experiment with fresh herbs and spices to customize your crackers.  All your friends, family and co-workers will be impressed and want to know where you bought those tasty crackers.  Time to make Soda Crackers.

1 1/2 cup flour ( use all-purpose, pastry, pasta flour, your choice).  2 teaspoon yeast, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1 teaspoon sugar.

Whisk flour, yeast, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar and sugar together.

7 Tablespoons water, 2 Tablespoons butter, 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil.  In sauce pan add water, oil and butter.  Heat until butter is melted.  Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients , mixing well.  You want the dough to be soft, not sticky or crumbly.  Add moe water, one teaspoon at a time if needed.  Grease bow, place dough in, cover and place in refrigerator overnight .

Next day remove dough from refrigerator and  allow it to sit  for 15 minutes at room temperature .  Pre heat oven to 425 degrees.   Lightly flour work surface.  Roll out dough as thin as possible.  Cut dough into 2 inch squares (circles, animal shapes, your choice).  Sprinkle with salt and press into dough.  Poke holes in crackers with fork.

Bake for 5 minutes, turn over to brown other side for another 5 minutes.  Cool and store in tight container.

ENJOY!
