  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and place parchment paper on two baking sheets.

 

  • Divide the dough in half. Roll out the dough, one portion at a time, as thinly and evenly as you can onto a lightly floured surface to form a large rectangle. For a crispier cracker, the thinner you can make it, the better.

  • Apply a thin layer of egg wash to the dough and then top with sea salt.

 

  • Bake the crackers for 15 to 22 minutes, or until they are brown and crispy. After fifteen minutes, check. Return the crackers to the oven and make sure to check them every two minutes to see if they are still flexible and not completely crispy.

Tips for making olive oil crackers

 

  • Despite how simple it is to create, here are some suggestions to ensure that your crackers turn out exactly every time:

  • Before rolling, refrigerate the dough: If you’re pressed for time, you may still prepare these crackers without chilling the dough. However, rolling it out and preventing ripping can be achieved by cooling it for an hour.

 

  • Roll out the dough as thinly as you can without allowing it to tear: Your cracker will be crispier if the dough is thinner. When rolled out, the dough should almost fill a half sheet pan.

  • Spread the dough as thinly as you can: Not only should you roll it thinly, but you should also roll it uniformly to prevent under- and overcooked sections in the oven.

 

  • When the crackers are baking, keep a watchful eye on them; you want them to get extra crispy but not burned. Thus, make sure to examine the crackers and see if they require more time after 15 minutes.

  • A few bubbles of air are fine: Your crackers can develop some air bubbles while they bake. It’s not a big deal, but if you don’t like them, just inspect the crackers after baking for five minutes and use a knife to poke holes in the bubbles.

 

  • Cut the crackers into strips or squares before placing them on a baking sheet coated with parchment paper if you don’t like the rustic appearance. Cookie cutters might even be used to cut out shapes.
