How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease three baking sheets; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all spice mix ingredients in bowl. Set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine whole wheat flour, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork just until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk; stir just until flour is moistened. Stir in sesame seed.

  4. STEP 4

    Place dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 3-5 times or until smooth.

  5. STEP 5

    Divide dough into thirds. Roll out dough, one-third at a time, on lightly floured surface to 10 1/2x8-inch rectangle. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Cut each dough into 3 1/2x2-inch rectangles, using fluted pastry cutter. (Do not separate.) Repeat with remaining dough.

  6. STEP 6

    Beat egg white and water in bowl with whisk. Brush top of dough, using pastry brush. Sprinkle one-third spice mix onto each dough. Prick each rectangle several times with fork.

  7. STEP 7

    Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. Break along score marks.

  8. STEP 8

    Combine all spread ingredients in bowl; mix well. Serve at room temperature with crackers. Store refrigerated.

Tip #1

- If you don’t have a fluted pastry cutter, crackers can be cut with a pizza cutter or knife.

Tip #2

- It is very important to prick each dough rectangle several times before baking to ensure the crackers are flat and crisp.

Tip #3

- These everything crackers are the perfect accompaniment to a hearty soup.

Tip #4

- Different colors or browning and slightly different textures are common when making crackers. Roll at even thickness for most uniform results.

Tip #5

- For a more rustic look, do not pre-score crackers before baking, just cool them and then break them apart into pieces.
