Gluten/Dairy Free Saltine Crackers

 One thing I really miss with a Gluten free lifestyle diet
 is saltine crackers !!!!
This recipe comes pretty close ... 
  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend, plus a little more for rolling. I’m using Marilyn’s Flour 2 Flour.
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder.
  • 1/4 c dairy-free shortening (butter flavored or original), cut into cubes I’m using Nutivabutter flavored shortening.
  • 2 tbsp cashew milk (substitute any non-dairy milk).
  • 1/3 cup water.
  • coarse kosher salt.

 Preheat oven to 375F.

Combine flour and baking powder in a large bowl or food processor. Cut in shortening (pulse with food processor) into a coarse crumble or  a little smaller than a pea size shape. Add in the non-dairy milk and water and mix until a soft dough forms.

Lightly dust a surface with the gluten free flour  to roll out dough into a rectangle shape. Roll out dough as thin as you can get it..the thinner the more crisper cracker. Use a knife or pizza wheel to cut squares. Carefully move squares to a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Prick each square with the fork  going across each cracker and then sprinkle with coarse kosher salt.

Bake for 6 minutes, rotating halfway through the cooking time. Keep cooking and rotating every 3 minutes until the crackers are crisp and just lightly golden. 

Let cool completely before eating, store leftovers in an airtight container.

Note : Extra step for a crisper cracker is place them in a food dehydrator overnight . 

  Enjoy !!!

With your favorite jam, fruit spread, peanut or almond butter, and your favorite bowl of soup !
