Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, plus extra to lightly coat
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1 tsp dried basil

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or in a medium mixing bowl, if mixing by hand), combine the flour and salt. Slowly add the water and olive oil and, using a dough hook attachment (or a wooden spoon if using your hands), mix the dough at medium speed for about 5 - 7 minutes. The dough should be tacky. If the dough is too sticky or too dry, add a bit more flour or water, respectively.

  2. When done mixing, shape the dough into a large ball and divide into 6-8 pieces. Roll the pieces into balls, lightly cover with olive oil and place on a clean plate. Cover with a clean dish towel or plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for 30-45 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  4. Using a rolling pin, flatten one dough ball and roll out as flat and even as possible. Using a knife or pizza cutter, divide the dough evenly into cracker-sized pieces. You can cut the dough into whatever shape you like at this point.
  5. Arrange cracker dough pieces on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Poke each cracker with a fork a few times to prevent puffing. Sprinkle some kosher salt or sea salt or any other desired toppings and then place into oven.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden-brown and crispy, but not burnt. Allow to cool before eating.
  7. Repeat the process for the remaining dough balls.
