Crackers are a staple snack in many homes. They're quick, easy, and can be paired with a variety of condiments to suit anyone's taste. But baking the perfect cracker at home can be a bit of a mystery. It's time to end that mystery with our comprehensive guide on how to bake the crispiest crackers in two easy steps.

Step 1: Preparing the Dough

Before we start with the baking process, the first step is to prepare the dough. Here's an easy recipe to get you started:


  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt.
  2. Gradually add the water and olive oil, mixing until the dough comes together.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes until it's smooth and elastic.
  4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.

This recipe is a basic one, but you can always add your favorite herbs or spices to give your crackers a unique flavor.

Step 2: Baking the Crackers

Once your dough is ready, it's time to bake. Here's how:

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Roll out the dough as thin as possible on a floured surface.
  3. Cut the dough into squares or your desired shape using a pizza cutter or knife.
  4. Place the crackers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the crackers are golden and crispy.

Remember, the secret to crisp crackers is rolling the dough very thin. The thinner the dough, the crispier the cracker will be.

Pro Tips

  • Using good quality ingredients is key to achieving perfect crispy crackers. Always choose high quality flour and olive oil.
  • Don't overwork the dough. Overworking the dough can result in tough crackers.
  • For even baking, turn the baking sheet halfway through the baking time.

So there you have it, the secrets to perfecting the crispiest crackers in just two steps.
