  • Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide the dough into two pieces and roll each into a very thin (1/8 inch or less) 10x12 inch rectangle. Using a fluted pastry cutter, cut the rectangles into 1-inch squares, then transfer them to the baking sheets.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until puffed and browning at the edges. Watch carefully, as the high fat content of the crackers makes a fine line between golden delicious and burnt. Immediately move the crackers to racks to cool.

i think i either rolled my dough too thick or didnt cook long enough. Mine didnt get crispy, instead maintained a cheesy bread texture

Is it possible to substitute olive oil for the butter? If so, how much?
