I recently started up a sourdough starter. This means that every other day or so I need to remove some starter and feed the remainder. Usually the directions say to “discard” the starter that is removed. But I read that you can use it in recipes. So I went looking for some recipes to use. I found crackers! I have wanted to make crackers for some time and never got around to it. So today I found this really easy recipe and tried it out. They are not beautiful, but the crackers are delicious!! And wow did they ever smell good while baking! I altered the recipe a bit…I added herbes de provence, dried onion, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.
1 cup starter
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons herbes de provence
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Mix all together and . Divide dough in half (for easier handling) and cover. Chill for an hour. Roll out 1 of the balls of dough sprinkling with flour as needed to keep from sticking. Roll out thinly. I rolled the ball out into a rectangle to fit on my cookie sheet. Roll the dough on your rolling pin to transfer the dough to the cookie sheet. Brush some olive oil lightly onto the dough and sprinkle with either coarse salt or herbs, as you like. Cut dough with pizza cutter to the size crackers you want. Bake at 400 degrees about 15 minutes until getting brown. Remove from oven and cool.
