When you get in from work and want to put your feet up with a cuppa you can’t beat having some cheese and crackers to go with it. But why keep buying crackers when you can make very tasty ones at home? This recipe is a very easy one to follow so there should be no excuses.
To store put them in a sealed container and away from sunlight.
150g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
A third of a teaspoon of salt.
Sift the flour and mix in the salt and baking powder. Using a butter knife mix in the butter, you can use a normal knife but it is a bit harder.
Add the milk and mix until you have a dough.
On a floured surface roll out the dough until it is pretty thin but not thin enough to crack. Roughly to about 0.5cm.
Cut out the crackers with a cutter or a half pint glass.
Bake in the oven 180°c for fan assisted ovens, 200°c for normal and 400°f or gas mark 6 for about 30 mins. I say about as this depends on how thin you have cut them, check every now and then. They will be golden when done.
Serve with a bottle of white lightning and a packet of lambert and butlers or alternatively some cheese and wine.
