Olive Crackers / olive savory Crackers

                               I never thought olives can be used as an ingredients in crackers, until I came across this recipe from Crackers and Dips book. I altered this recipe to my need, I have to admit, that these crackers turned out pretty good. My kids loved the original version where I tried with all purpose flour.  For my knowledge both flour worked very well with this recipe and need to adjust the milk based on the consistency of the mixture. Refrigerating the dough, makes it more easy to work! if you don't have time to chill it, just pinch a dough and roll in to small poori balls and flatten the dough with help of your palm and transfer to cookie tray in equal distance. Bake it extra 2 ~ 3 minutes to get the crispy version but keep an eye on it! Check out Bake athone page to see what my blogger friends are baking for this month.

  3. What a recipe! The olives would itself lend the saltiness and these sound like something apt to dip in a watery soup...
