  • Yield: 16 crackers (serving size: 2 crackers)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (about 4 3/4 ounces)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 300°.

Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir with whisk. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1/3 cup water and cream; stir to form a stiff dough.
