Gluten Free Parmesan Garlic Crackers

Gluten Free Crackers

 

I love snacking. Being gluten free and hyper-aware of the preservatives, additives and fillers found in most pre-packaged snack foods makes it really hard to sit down and enjoy something without guilt.

Because of this, I set out to create my own alternative. After a few tries, I came up with a recipe that has won approval from the family and a few guests: Parmesan Garlic Crackers…they’re easy to make and delicious. Try them out today!

Parmesan Garlic Crackers

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose gluten free flour (I use Pamela’s)
  • 3/4 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Parmesan blend
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (approximate)
  • 1/2 cup butter, chilled and cubed
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions

  • Combine flours, cheese, onion and black pepper until combined.
  • Add the butter and use your fingers or a fork to make it into a crumb-like consistency.
  • Add the sour cream and egg yolk. Use your hands to blend until the dough stays together.
  • Roll the dough out into 2 logs, 12 inches each (I like my crackers to be smaller).
  • Wrap each log with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours…you can do it overnight. (I froze one log to use later).
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice the log into the thickness you desire. Mine were around 1/8 to 1/4 an inch, but they could be thicker if you’d like softer crackers.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown.

Each log should yield 30-50 crackers depending on the thickness you desire.
