I think I'm on a mission lately to figure out how to make all my favorite crackers from scratch. What I'm discovering is that they are so easy to do and so cheap! Even with coupons I most of the time I could purchase crackers for this cheap unless they were free. For example, these saltines take only 4 ingredients, one cup of flour costs me .12, the water is free, the salt is minimal, and the butter costs pennies. So about .20 for a quart of saltines that are fresh and buttery with no preservatives, sounds like a good deal to me!
What you need:
- 1 c. flour
- 2 T butter
- 6-7 T water
- 1/2 t. salt
- plus a little more salt and butter for the tops
