PARMESAN CREAM CRACKERS
Crackers can be made with just flour and water (as in water crackers, or matzo), but like almost everything else, they're better with richer ingredients. These are typically made with butter, oil, and milk or cheese, or both, along with flavorings like seeds, herbs and spices. I like a simple, flakey, buttery cracker, often with cheese. This could stem from my childhood addiction to Cheez-Its. Once you get the hang of it, which will take exactly one try, play around. You might skip the cheese and add freshly chopped rosemary or thyme to the dough. Swapping pepper for salt as a topping makes a difference. Or top with minced garlic or onion, sesame or poppy seeds, or whatever is on your favorite commercial cracker. In every case, you are going to make it better.

- Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly dust with flour. Put flour, salt, cheese and butter in bowl of a food processor. Pulse until flour and butter are combined. Add about 1/4 cup cream or half-and-half and let machine run for a bit; continue to add liquid a teaspoon at a time, until mixture holds together but is not sticky.
- Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface until 1/2-inch thick or even thinner, adding flour as needed. Transfer sheet of dough to prepared baking sheet (drape it over rolling pin to make it easier). Score lightly with a sharp knife, pizza cutter or a pastry wheel if you want to break crackers into squares or rectangles later on. Sprinkle with salt or other topping if you like.
- Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Cool on a rack; serve warm or at room temperature or store in a tin for a few days.

PARMESAN AND THYME CRACKERS
- Place the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and mix until creamy. Add the Parmesan, flour, salt, thyme and pepper and combine.
- Dump the dough on a lightly floured board and roll into a 13-inch long log. Wrap the log in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.
- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Cut the log crosswise into 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick slices. Place the slices on a sheet pan and bake for 22 minutes.
SLICE-AND-BAKE PARMESAN-ALMOND CRACKERS
A crisp, savory cracker with the ease of a slice-and-bake cookie, these snacks are flavored with Parmesan, almonds, and thyme, and come together easily in the food processor. Serve them with afternoon tea for a savory option, or set them out alongside an antipasti platter of marinated olives, seasonal fruits, and a creamy spread.

- In a food processor, pulse both flours, cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, lemon zest, and thyme. Add butter and cream cheese; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add lemon juice and pulse just until dough comes together.
- Transfer dough to a work surface. Divide into two pieces, and shape each into a log about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap separately in plastic; refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to 2 days.
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Slice logs crosswise into rounds about 1/8 inch thick. Place rounds on parchment-lined baking sheets. Top each with a tiny thyme sprig (if using) and bake until firm and golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes.
- Transfer baking sheets to wire racks and let crackers cool on pans 5 minutes, then transfer crackers to wire racks. Crackers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
I got this recipe for these delectable wheat crackers from a friend in Australia. It's become a standard for party canapes as well as a good snack by itself.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit or 180 celcius.
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
- Sift flour into a bowl.
- Stir in Parmesan and parsley.
- Add egg yolk, olive oil and 2 tablespoons water.
- Stir well until combined.
- Turn dough onto floured surface and knead until smooth.
- Divide dough into two portions.
- Roll out one portion between two sheets of parchment paper until it is 5 centimeters thick.
- Use a 5 centimeter fluted cutter to cut out crackers.
- (If you use a larger cutter, of course there'll be fewer crackers and you can determine how many you want to make.) Carefully place on the lined tray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown.
- Set aside for 10 minutes to cool on the tray before transfering to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Repeat this process with the remaining portion of dough.
These are dainty little cheese crackers with a pungent, meaty, Parmesan edge. It is that extra step of browning the crackers in a hot oven that lends them so much character. It caramelizes the cheese, giving it an earthy, almost porcinilike intensity. That and using good Parmigiano-Reggiano are the secrets to success. The technique, no rolling pin necessary, is child's play. The result is resolutely adult -- especially when you serve them with wine.

- In a food processor, combine ingredients, and pulse until dough comes together. Turn dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap, and form it into a log 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Chill until firm, at least 2 hours.
- Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease two baking sheets. Cut log into 1/4-inch-thick crackers, and place them an inch apart on sheets. Bake until firm, about 12 to 13 minutes. Remove baking sheets from oven, and raise temperature to 500 degrees. When temperature comes up to correct heat, return sheets to oven, and bake for 3 minutes more, or until crackers are deeply golden brown all over. Let cool on a wire rack.

FLAKY PARMESAN CRACKERS
Delicious Parmesan crackers.

- Combine flour, Parmesan cheese, butter, salt, and mustard for dough in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until mixture is well combined and resembles bread crumbs. Pour 1/2 of the cream in slowly, with the processor running, until combined. Continue adding remaining cream, a little at a time, until dough has come together in clumps and feels like a damp, but not sticky, slightly over-processed pastry dough.
- Gather dough into a ball, then roll into a log. Wrap in plastic and place in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes or longer.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Cut dough into quarters, then cut each quarter into 8 pieces. Lightly flour each piece as needed and feed through one of the thinnest settings of a pasta roller to make irregularly shaped, oblong crackers that are about 1/16 inch thick, 2 inches wide, and 8 inches long. Alternatively, use a rolling pin to roll dough out on a lightly floured countertop, and cut into any shape you wish.
- Working in batches, lay crackers on a baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with Parmesan.
- Bake each batch in the preheated oven until crackers are browned at the edges, golden in the middle, and fully cooked through, 8 to 9 minutes. They will crisp as they cool.

These cheesy, buttery gems will likely become a mainstay in your repertoire. Not only are they crispy, rich and, well, addictive, they can be partially made up to a month in advance. That's because once the dough is made it can be frozen and simply "cut to order" as you need it. Just be sure to freeze it in small portions so that you don't have to defrost it all at once. Although these crackers are great plain, you can draw on the age-old "apples and cheddar" theme by topping them with a dollop of apple or pear butter.

- In the bowl of a food processor, place all ingredients except the butter and water. Pulse 5 times. Add the butter and pulse again until the butter pieces are the size of BBs. Add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and pulse just until the dough holds together. If the dough is still crumbly, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until it reaches the right consistency.
- Turn the dough out onto a large piece of waxed paper. Roll the dough into a log, 9 to 10 inches long, and square off the ends. Refrigerate, well wrapped, for at least 2 hours and up to 2 days. Or freeze it for up to 1 month. (You may want to cut the log in half or in thirds to freeze if you think you will want to defrost a smaller amount at a time.)
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- To make the crackers, cut the log into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange the slices on a baking sheet 1-inch apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the crackers are a light golden color. Turn the crackers and bake for 3 to 5 more minutes, or until they are golden around the edges. Cool on a rack. Serve at room temperature.

LEMON-PEPPER PARMESAN CRACKERS
- In a bowl stir together the Parmesan, the flour, the zest, and 3/4 teaspoon of the pepper and with a pastry blender blend in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in the center, add the water and the lemon juice, and combine the mixture with fork until it just forms a dough. On a work surface knead the dough until it is just combined, transfer it to a sheet of wax paper, and using the wax paper as a guide form it into an 11- by 1 1/2-inch squared-off log. Chill the dough, wrapped in the wax paper, for 1 hour, or until it is firm enough to slice. (The dough may be made 2 days in advance and kept wrapped well and chilled.)
- Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut the dough into 1/4-inch-thick slices, arrange the slices 1 inch apart on baking sheets, and bake them in batches in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes, or until they are golden around the edges. Transfer the crackers carefully with a spatula to a rack, let them cool, and sprinkle them with the additional pepper.
