Gluten/Dairy Free Saltine Crackers
One thing I really miss with a Gluten free lifestyle diet
is saltine crackers !!!!
This recipe comes pretty close …
- 1 cup gluten free flour blend, plus a little more for rolling. I’m using Marilyn’s Flour 2 Flour.
- 1/2 tsp baking powder.
- 1/4 c dairy-free shortening (butter flavored or original), cut into cubes I’m using Nutivabutter flavored shortening.
- 2 tbsp cashew milk (substitute any non-dairy milk).
- 1/3 cup water.
- coarse kosher salt.
Preheat oven to 375F.
Combine flour and baking powder in a large bowl or food processor. Cut in shortening (pulse with food processor) into a coarse crumble or a little smaller than a pea size shape. Add in the non-dairy milk and water and mix until a soft dough forms.
Lightly dust a surface with the gluten free flour to roll out dough into a rectangle shape. Roll out dough as thin as you can get it..the thinner the more crisper cracker. Use a knife or pizza wheel to cut squares. Carefully move squares to a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Prick each square with the fork going across each cracker and then sprinkle with coarse kosher salt.
Bake for 6 minutes, rotating halfway through the cooking time. Keep cooking and rotating every 3 minutes until the crackers are crisp and just lightly golden.
Let cool completely before eating, store leftovers in an airtight container.
Note : Extra step for a crisper cracker is place them in a food dehydrator overnight .
With your favorite jam, fruit spread, peanut or almond butter, and your favorite bowl of soup !
