Spicy crackers! So, so very spicy.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling out the dough
  • 1 bunch of fresh chives, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus a sprinkle more for cracker topping
  • 8 tablespoons of cold butter (1/2 cup, or one stick of butter)
  • ¼ cup Sriracha sauce
  • 8-10 tablespoons of half and half or milk (Between ½-5/8 cup.)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425ยบ.
  2. Using either a food processor, a pastry blender or two knives, cut together the flour, chives, 1 teaspoon salt and cold butter until the dough takes on a granular, sandy consistency.
  3. Blend in Sriracha sauce.
  4. Slowing mix in milk or half and half until a moist dough ball is formed.
  5. Divide into three equal balls.
  6. Cover and rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Lightly flour a piece of parchment paper or lightly oiled foil the size of a cookie sheet and roll out one dough ball.
  8. Score with a pastry wheel, pizza wheel or knife in desired cracker shape and sprinkle with kosher or sea salt.
  9. Move the dough and the liner onto a cookie sheet.
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until crackers are crisp.
  11. Repeat baking for remaining two dough balls.
Notes
Prep time includes 30 minutes rest in refrigerator. Rolling out the dough on parchment paper or foil makes it easier to transfer the dough to your cookie sheet, prevents sticking and burning the underside of your crackers. Crackers will crisp up even more as they cool down after baking.
