- 1 1/4 cups (5 oz) 100% whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus extra for sprinkling on
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 4 tablespoons Earth Balance (can use soy-free) or butter
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp water (or a tiny bit more if dough is too dry)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a non-stick mat. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, paprika, salt).
With a pastry blender (or two forks), cut in the Earth Balance or butter into the flour mixture until crumbly. Now mix together the water and vanilla and then pour into the flour and Earth balance mixture. Stir this mixture until it comes together. If it appears dry add a touch of water, but you don’t want it sticky.
Split the dough in half. On a floured surface or on a non-stick mat, roll out one half of the dough very thin (1/16th inch). Using a pizza cutter, cut into whatever shape you desire. Using a splatula, place the crackers on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat as necessary. Sprinkle with more salt and sesame seeds if desired.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, watching closely. Half way through baking rotate the pan to ensure even baking. Be careful because the crackersburn quickly. Cool completely. Makes about 64 crackers for this full recipe. Store in an air-tight container.
Note: This recipe made enough crackers for two baking sheets.
