Water crackers recipe -easy biscuits for cheese

Although my Dad has a sweet tooth, he also seriously enjoys his cheese so for dessert after Father’s Day lunch a few years back, I prepared a good old cheese platter.

To mix it up a little, I decided I’d give homemade water crackers a go for the first time.

I actually thought they’d be tricky but they were extremely easy to make and despite their not-so-pretty appearance, tasted great and were really moreish.

I found it hard to stop eating them.

With only four basic ingredients, they’re also very economical and a great one to make when you need a little snack at the last minute and can’t be bothered going to the shops.

The four ingredients needed to bake water crackers
Four ingredients

The water biscuits are made of flour, salt, olive oil and water. I told you – super simple, basic ingredients.

Step one for making watercracker biscuits - mix together the flour and salt
Salt and flour

The first step is to combine the flour and salt in a large bowl then make a well in the centre.

Second step - mix the oil and water together
Oil and water

Pour the olive oil and water into the well in the centre. As the recipe only called for 2 tablespoons of olive oil, I used the best quality I had to add a delicious flavour to the crackers.

Mixing the ingredients together for homemade watercrackers
Combined

Use a knife to cut through the mixture until it all comes together.

If you have a food processor or Thermomix, I’m sure you could use it instead but it really wasn’t difficult making them with a knife.

After rolling out the dough cut the shapes out of the crackers
Cutting the crackers

Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it until it all comes together.

Roll the dough out as thinly as possible then cut it into shapes.

My circles didn’t turn out very well so I ended up just cutting the dough which had a much better result.

They look much more rustic and home made if you mix up the shapes.

You could just slice it up like I did in these Paleo corn chips.

They don’t spread so you can put them pretty close together.

Ready for baking

Prick the crackers with a fork or skewer and bake in a 180C fan-forced oven for about 12 minutes or until they turn golden.

Transfer the crackers to a wire rack to cool then store them in an air-tight container until it’s time to serve them.

A good brie is my favourite type of cheese. I also can’t go past a sharp cheddar style.
