Cinnamon Sugar Crackers

27 Dec

The thought of making homemade crackers seemed absurd at first – why spend the time making them when you can grab a box at the store? Well my friends, I’ve been proven wrong. I went out on a limb and tried these tasty little treats myself and WOW – they are a million times better than anything you could buy! The fresh taste totally beats something from a box and really, this 5 ingredient recipe weren’t difficult to make. These crackers will definitely be a regular snack in our household!

Cinnamon Sugar Crackers

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
5 Tbsp sugar, divided
3 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
2 Tbsp milk

Yield: 50+ crackers

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. With a food processor or mixer, combine the butter, flour, 4 Tbsp of sugar, and 1 tsp of cinnamon. Mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the milk and mix until the dough forms a ball.

On a floured surface, using a heavily floured rolling pin, roll the dough thinly into a rectangle. With a pizza cutter wheel, trim off the sides to form a neat rectangle. Cut the dough into 1×1 inch squares. Using the blunt end of a skewer, make a hole in each cracker. This will make sure the cracker doesn’t over puff when baking.

Gently transfer the crackers (I used the edge of the pizza cutter to get them off the surface) to a lined baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the remaining cinnamon and sugar and mix. Liberally sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture all over the crackers. Bake the crackers on the middle rack for 12 minutes, or until the ends are barely browned. Remove from the oven and set the baking sheet on a rack to cool. Store in an airtight container and enjoy!
