I have always wanted to try to make my own crackers and thought the upcoming holiday parties would be the perfect time to try.
Of course, the recipe had to be easy and contain ingredients I already had in the house.
After a brief google search, Martha Stewart’s whole wheat and sesame crackers peaked my interest. They were easy to make and tasted great (a kind of savory shortbread cookie). Unfortunately, they did not hold up under the pressure of slathering them full of toppings. (Keep you eyes peeled for the cheese ball recipe that knocked the socks off everyone who has tried it!). Luckily, although the were hard to keep together once dressed, they tasted great on their own.
I happened to have black sesame seeds but any type will do. I have to say, the black contrast does look pretty.
Don’t be swayed by the title- despite using whole wheat flour, these crackers do not taste like cardboard! This flour adds a nice sweetness that contrasts well with the saltiness. And a wonderful way to use up that whole wheat flour!
