Homemade Salted Wheat Crackers

  • Yield 50 pieces

These homemade wheat crackers star Wisconsin White Cheddar cheese.


3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3.5 ounces (a scant half cup) water, as warm as possible from sink
1 cup (4-ounces) Wiscosin White Cheddar, finely shredded cheese
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon instant yeast
Sea salt for topping, to taste


  1. Add dry ingredients to a bowl and evenly mix to combine. Add wet ingredients and mix for a minute or two to bring dough together. Cover and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F.
  3. Roll dough on a greased surface (such as a countertop) into a large rectangle. Using a pizza cutter (and a ruler if desired, for straight lines), cut dough into cracker-size rectangles or triangles.
  4. Prep pan with cooking spray, olive oil or a silicone mat. Transfer cracker dough pieces to pan. Sprinkle with sea salt (or herbs or more cheese) and press toppings into crackers. Stab crackers with a fork to allow steam to release. Bake for 25 minutes, or until crackers begin to become fragrant. A perfectly done cracker will feel a little dense, and have just the tiniest bit of give to it.
