Cumin-Caraway Crackers

Cumin-Caraway Crackers
These crackers have a delicate, crisp texture and a light flavor which is punctuated by the caraway. You may substitute spices in your favorite combination. Very easy to make.

¾ cup rye flour
¾ cup regular flour
1 Tablespoon caraway seed
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup butter
1/3 cup milk
1 beaten egg white


Combine the flour, rye flour, caraway seed, baking powder, cumin, coriander, and salt in a food processor.

Add the butter, cover, and process until blended. Add the milk and process until the mixture just forms a dough. If necessary, you may add an additional tablespoon of milk.

Turn the dough out onto a floured board and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Roll out until the dough is about 1/8 inch thick.

Cut into desired shapes, place on an ungreased baking sheet, and brush lightly with egg white. Using the tines of a fork, prick the crackers all over.


Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until crisp.

Cool on wire racks. When completely cool, the crackers may be stored in an airtight container.

Makes about 40 crackers.
