after a truly action packed month, i am glad to be back! the master gardeners chapter i belong to hosts a festival each may and last month, i was the co-chair of the event. not sure what i was thinking when i agreed to do that-it ruled my life that last few weeks before the big day!
for the first challenge in june, the tuesdays with dorie bakers chose a simple, savory wheat cracker. the dough has 3 ingredients; whole wheat flour, water and salt. a variety of seeds and a spritz of water tops them off.
so thin! it was actually pretty easy to roll out the dough. resting it was the key and lots of flour on the table and the dough helped too.
i made half of the recipe and cut it into 4 pieces. each one was cut into a different shape. for this first sheet, i gave it a sprinkle of nanami togarashi, a japanese pepper blend.
to keep it interesting, i also changed the topping on each sheet of dough. these were simply sesame seeds.
the lighter crackers just do not have the crispy crunch a cracker needs.
the salted sticks are my favorite-especially so since they are also the darkest.
the spicy japanese pepper blend is a nice addition to the crackers.
