How to Make It

Step 1

Place all ingredients in a food processor; pulse until coarse crumbs form. Add 1/2 cup water through food chute, 1 Tbsp. at a time, pulsing until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half. Press each half of dough gently into a 4-inch circle on plastic wrap; cover. Chill for 1 hour.

Step 2

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Place racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and preheat to 375°F. Place half of dough in center between 2 baking sheet-size pieces of parchment; keep other half of dough in refrigerator. Roll dough into a 10-inch square, about 1/8 inch thick.

Step 3

Carefully remove top piece of parchment. Cut dough into 1-inch squares using a fluted pastry wheel or knife. Pierce a hole in center of each square with a wooden toothpick. Using a spatula, carefully place squares on lined baking sheets, spacing approximately 1/2 inch apart.

Step 4

Bake sheets of squares until crisp, about 20 minutes; rotate once. Transfer crackers to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat procedure with remaining half of dough.
