Here is another recipe you can prepare for a holiday party. These crackers are really easy to make. I used Parmesan cheese, but these would be good with just about any cheese. If you don’t like garlic and cayenne, you could try other spices like rosemary, onion powder or black pepper. I want to try them again using Pepperjack or sharp cheddar cheese.
I would recommend rolling them out as thin as you can, to make them crispier. I was afraid they would fall apart when I transferred them to the baking sheet, so I rolled them out to about 1/8-inch thick but I wish I had gotten them thiner. After baking, they were crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Still good, but not quite a crunchy cracker.
After the crackers cooled, I put them in a bowl with a lid on top. (Milo kept sniffing around and I wanted to remove the temptation!) The next day they had lost their crispiness, so I put them on a tray in the toaster oven for about 10 minutes and they came out crunchy and very good.
- 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour (I used Carol’s Sorghum Blend)
- 1 cup grated cheese
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup oil (I used olive oil)
- 1/2 cup water
- grated cheese to sprinkle on top (optional)
Carol’s Sorghum Flour Blend:
- 1 1/2 cups sorghum flour
- 1 1/2 cups potato starch (not potato flour) or cornstarch
- 1 cup tapioca flour/starch
Whisk together dry ingredients. Stir in cheese.
Mix with oil and water to form a ball of dough. Cover and place in the refrigerator to cool for about 15 minutes.
Roll out in sections on floured wax paper and cut into slices or wedges. Sprinkle with additional grated cheese, if desired.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until crackers reach desired crispiness. Top with your favorite topping or eat them just as they are!
These crackers can be made ahead of time and frozen for later use. Warm them up in the oven for a few minutes if they lose their crispiness.
