I feel bad that I do not do a lot of baking with Bilal. When Hasan was younger he would always help me. Since we were not on any schedule we could always find time to do things together. Since Hasan is in school everything has to follow that schedule. Also it's very hard to get both of them to help me when I'm making something. So when Hasan was at school, Bilal and I made these crackers. Bilal loved making the crackers. We used tiny cookie cutters to make some shapes but it started to take too long so we also used a pizza cutter and just cut it into small squares and rectangles. Bilal also loved to eat the crackers as well. He was calling them "Yummy Crackers". While I was praying Zuhr I could hear Bilal was up to something in the kitchen. So when I was done I quietly went to the kitchen to find him with his mouth full of crackers :).
Homemade Oyster Crackers
Adapted Cupcake Project
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp unsalted butter, cold
1/3 cup cold water
additional salt for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Cut butter into small pieces and add to bowl. Using your hands make into a coarse meal texture. Add cold water and lightly knead dough until it forms a ball. You may have to add a tablespoon of water to get it to come together. Cover the bowl and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes. We used some small cookie cutters and a pizza wheel. Place crackers on prepared baking sheet leaving a little bit of space in between. Bake for 15 minutes or until bottoms are starting to brown. Turn oven off and crack open the oven door. Allow to cool in the oven for 20 minutes. Timing will vary depending on how thin you roll out the dough so keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn.
Once crackers are cooled sprinkle with additional salt.
