Crackers
 
5 Attachment(s)
Took a slight detour from the loaves today and made some crackers. They came out pretty well except for them being slightly too thick. I'll have to roll the dough out a bit thinner next time. From left the right the seasonings are: italian, toasted black sesame, raw sesame, light toasted sesame, paprika, poppy seed, caraway seed, cumin seed, and olive oil with sea salt.

Can you share your recipe, plus cooking time, temp of hearth etc.

Way to go RLF,

I've done those in the past, and need to start again -- it's a great way of getting a good cracker without the transfats and oils you see in the supermarket crackers. There's a good recipe in Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice.

Wow. My list of cool things to do with a brick oven just got one longer.

Re: Crackers
 
Thanks! They really are quite good. I had a little bit of dough leftover b/c it all wouldn't fit on the cookie sheet, so I got my skillet very hot and fried the flattened piece of dough until it was cooked. BTW, the dough also makes pita bread, which is what I got out of the frying pan. We're having a holiday party here in a few weeks and I'd like to get these crackers nailed down so that they can serve as additional snack food.

Its the exact recipe that James mentioned in Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice. They are called Lavash Crackers. There is a copy of the recipe at Recipes from The*Gilded Fork: Lavash Crackers
