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.
Rosemary, Garlic & Poppy Seed Crackers
