“Tired of spending too much for organic snack foods, I now make my own crackers. From Better Homes & Gardens magazine. This is for Sauvignon, basil and pine nuts. Other wine/herb/spice options are in step 14.”
24 crackers

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325'.
  2. Combine flour, basil and pine nuts (see below for different herb/spice options), salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine wine (see below for other options), and olive oil in a seperate bowl. Add wine mixture slowly, to the flour mixture.
  4. Toss with a fork, form into a ball and place on a (lightly) floured surface; the dough will appear dry.
  5. Roll into a thin (1/8"-1/16" thick) rectangle, 12"x9" and cut into 24 crackers (using a crinkle-cutter gives a neat presentation). Use a fork to prick each cracker several times.
  6. Carefully spread the crackers on an ungreased baking sheet, and sprinkle lightly with coarse salt.
  7. Bake about 18 minutes, or until crackers are firm and just beginning to brown. Allow to completely cool on wire racks.
  8. May be stored for up to a week, in an airtight container.
  9. Other wine/herb/spice combinations: Riesling& 2 t fresh snipped tarragon& 1/4 t paprika OR Cabernet Sauvignon& 2 fresh snipped rosemary OR Champagne& 2 t dry mustard OR Chardonnay& 2 t crushed fennel seed.
