Rosemary and Garlic Crackers

Rosemary and Garlic Crackers – HOW TO MAKE CRACKERS AT HOME! These homemade Rosemary and Garlic Crackers are the best crackers I have ever had!

I think I know exactly why these are called CRACKers. I OD’d on these babies. Hardcore.

I wasn’t alone. Ana, my lil’ one, was in the room with me. She was on one side of the baking sheet and I was on the other. Eating.

Can you imagine an almost two-year old with garlic breath? Smile

I wish I had a photo to share of our moment with the baking sheet, but I was too busy. Eating.

Usually I make these into long sticks, or twists, and top them with sesame seeds or poppy seeds. That’s the Macedonian way. This time around I wanted to Americanize them, so I cut them in squares. Then I Italianized them and added garlic and rosemary. Smile

Hope you love them as much as Ana and I did.

    Just made these last night and tasted great — but I had trouble spreading the dough out in the pan. Dough seemed tough and it didn’t spread well, kept tearing/ripping so that I couldn’t fill the pans. Any suggestions for helping the dough be more pliable?

    1. Hi Teri!

      This just depends on how large the baking sheet/pan was. Sometimes I will make them on a jellyroll pan and the dough can’t cover even half of it, other times I use a 9×13 pan and that one seems to work better. Just stretch it out as far as it goes and let it be. 😀

    1. HI Julie!! I haven’t tried making these with whole wheat flour, but I would advise on using half wheat and half all-purpose flour, otherwise wheat flour alone would make your baked products denser and heavier. Hope that helps!!

  2. I made crackers very similar to these and they were wonderful. But they didn’t have the garlic powder so I will definitely experiment with that next. Thanks so much!

  3. Mmm. rosemary…. I can’t imagine these lasting long here. I am a sucker for rosemary in pretty much anything. I have been on a light cheese and cracker kick lately. Ill slice off just enough for one cracker and munch gleefully to come back a few hours later and do it again. These look perfect. I have never tried crackers before but theres always a first time for everything.

    I had never made crackers before & then I saw this and had to give it a try! I didn’t have rosemary or garlic powder to hand so put some chives in the mix instead and they turned out beautifully! I was very surprised how easy to make and yummy they were! Could easily be adapted to any flavour you should desire. Thanks so much for posting this recipe x

  5. Wonderful! Definitely going to try this dough…sounds like a great base for lots of different flavors. I bet these would be delicious with some White Bean Rosemary dip!!

  6. love these crackers. so flavorful and you make it sound so simple as well.:-) That sounds great for my friday movie night at home. Thanks for sharing.

  7. this Macedonian Italian American :d crackers look delish. I can imagine you and Ana eating them straight from the baking sheet. What a pretty image.
    Thanks for sharing Kate 🙂 hope you’re having a wonderful Friday

  8. Ohhhh Kate! Can I have another side of the baking tray (there are 4 right… so who’s going to be the lucky 4th sharing?)? These sound like a must try snack!!! They look delicious!

  9. Oh yes, these will do nicely!! Love the savory flavors and the garlic in particular. These are a must try!
    BTW… we loved the Whole Wheat Focaccia the other night, but I messed up and totally forgot about it until 15 minutes before dinner. I rolled it out and basically it turned out like cracker bread, but the flavor was awesome! Will try again, with proper planning soon!

  10. Man oh man I’m a sucker for anything garlicky… and the combo of rosemary and garlic is just an added bonus. I’m definitely bookmarking this recipe, although I might do it the Macedonian way because twists sound like fun!

  11. I’ve only made homemade crackers once and forgotten how good they were – these look terrific – your little girl is so lucky to have a mom making homemade crackers for her!

  12. The combination of rosemary and garlic is one of my all time fav. These crackers would definitely taste awsm .. I would love to enjoy them with some soup 🙂
