Parmesan and Sesame Crackers

Preparation time 20 mins - Baking time 8-10 mins plus 30 mins resting - Makes 24
Ingredients
  • 125g plain flour
  • 25g sesame seeds
  • 40g parmesan, grated
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 40ml sunflower or vegetable oil
  • 40ml cold water
Method
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the plain flour, sesame seeds, grated parmesan, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre and add the oil followed by a little of the water. Mix together to form a soft but not sticky dough, adding a little extra of the water if necessary to bring it together.
  2. Knead the dough gently together in the bowl. Wrap well in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 30 mins.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/gas mark 6. Once rested, roll out the dough thinly on a lightly floured work surface. Cut the dough into triangular crackers and transfer to a lined or well greased baking tray.
  4. Prick the crackers with a fork and bake in the oven for 8-10 mins until crisp and golden brown around the edges. Serve.
Top Tip! * These crackers will keep well in an airtight container for up to 5 days. If they soften slightly, crisp them up by placing them on a baking tray in a hot oven for 3-4 mins. * Get ahead and make the dough now, and then freeze until required. * Cut out the crackers easily using a roller type pizza cutter.
