Recipe: TMX Rosemary, Garlic & Poppy Seed Crackers

Recipe: TMX Rosemary, Garlic & Poppy Seed Crackers

Every weekend I spend one day baking for school lunches, after school snacks and treats. I usually load up the pantry and fridge with sweet baked goodies, but a week or so ago my husband asked for savoury snacks. Am I making too many sweet things I thought? Whoops…time to Facebook, Pinterest and google stalk for savoury recipes!

So while enjoying my coffee in bed, scrolling on Thermobliss  Facebook page, I stumbled upon a recipe that I knew my hubby would love. Rosemary and garlic crackers. I have tweaked the recipe to my pantry supplies, but you can find the original recipe here.

These are incredibly easy to whip up, great for school lunch boxes, if your children enjoy these flavours and perfect for dipping! I used a small star shaped cookie cutter, but any smallish cutter would be suitable. As I sit here typing, my 12 year old is devouring a bowl full (Which will actually mean I’ll have to make another batch asap) I didn’t load them up with a lot of garlic or rosemary, this was my ‘test’ batch with my fam bam. Next batch I will increase the rosemary and garlic to give more oomph in the flavour.

You can use fresh or dry rosemary, I didn’t have any fresh on hand so dry it was! Poppy seeds can be replaced with chia seeds, even sesame seeds for a totally different texture. I was able to make 3 cookie trays worth of crackers from the dough, approx. 36 crackers. I hope you enjoy these yummy crackers as much as my family have.

Recipe : Butterscotch Buttons

Recipe : Butterscotch Buttons

Since having my thermomix I have not bought packet biscuits. Actually I haven’t bought packet anything, everything has been made from scratch, back to basics if you will. I suffer from Fibromyalgia so anything processed can potentially make me have a flare up. I am so grateful that we can afford this wonderful machine, and on the plus side it has amped up my love of cooking and baking. And whatever meal or snack I’ve made they sure don’t last long with my family.

These butterscotch buttons are so good, you can’t  just have one! Perfect to have with a coffee in the afternoon or pop one in the kids lunchbox for a treat.  Easy to make. You know what’s going into your child’s body and there’s nothing better than homemade!

The original recipe states it makes 60 portions, but I have found to only be able to make approx 24 medium sized biscuits.

Enjoy.
