Homemade Saltine Crackers

Homemade Saltine Crackers


  • 1 c. flour
  • 2 T butter
  • 6-7 T water
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • plus a little more salt and butter for the tops


  1. Melt the butter and mix it well with the flour and salt.
  2. Add the tablespoons of water slowly, one at a time, and mix them in well. Don't add too much water so the dough is too sticky. You want a nice smooth dough.
  3. Roll out the dough until it very thin, about 1/8in. Transfer the rolled out dough to a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Score with a pizza cutter. Brush the tops very lightly with butter and sprinkle with a little salt. You can leave out this step if you want unsalted crackers. Bake these at 400F for about 15 minutes. They will harden more once they start to cool.
  5. Enjoy these plain or with a dip.
