Rosemary Olive Oil Crackers


Rosemary Olive Oil Crackers

I told you yesterday I needed to get in the kitchen and take some pictures of my food.  Well, that is just what I did!  I went crazy in the kitchen yesterday!  One thing I made was these crackers, and they were amazing.  Completely addicting.  They are crispy and so full of flavor, for just a few ingredients.  Crackers have to be one of the easiest things to make, but one of the most impressive.  You tell someone you made crackers, and they are floored.  But if you actually look at the recipe, you see just how easy they are.  I think these took 25 minutes from when I hit print on the recipe, until I was eating them.  These were a great afternoon snack for when my 6 year old came home.  He is slightly cracker obsessed :)

I love making something you can buy in the store at home.  It always tastes so much better, and you know what you are eating.  These crackers have 6 ingredients (not including water), but if you look at the back of a box, the list of ingredients are endless.  Trust me, these are so quick and easy.  Set them out with some cheese and you have an appetizer tray no one will be able to resist.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 to 4 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2/3 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • garlic powder, for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and rosemary. In a 2 cup measuring cup, combine water and olive oil. Stir into flour mixture until it forms a smooth ball. Divide dough in half. Using your hands, flatten the dough onto the cookie sheets. You want to get it as thin as possible. Dust with garlic powder. Using a pizza cutter, slice into squares.
  3. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Store in an air tight container.

  1. Such a great idea to make your own crackers. I cant believe how little time it takes!!

  2. I’ve only made crackers once, but I may have to make these for the NFL playoffs…perfect with chili!!!

  3. i tried to make crackers once and they came out horribly! i couldnt roll the dough out thin enough – how did you make yours thin enough to be a cracker and not a piece of thin, crunchier bread? 😉

    • This recipe is nice, because you press the dough out in the pan, so you don’t have to worry about transferring it. Basically you just roll or press down until it is paper thin, and you wonder if you got it too thin:)

  4. Don’t think I’ve ever had a rosemary cracker before but sounds great.

  5. YUM – my family would devour these in a second!

  6. These look wonderful – for some reason it never occurs to me to make my own crackers! The rosemary and sea salt should be just perfect.

  7. I’m glad that you told me crackers are easy to make! I’ve been wanting to make them for a long time, but for some reason have thought that they seem very daunting! I might just give these a whirl this weekend!

  8. Homemade crackers are seriously the best, aren’t they?

  9. YUM! I’m a huge fan of rosemary, I wish I had some to snack on right now!

  10. I have never had success making crackers. These look easy and delicious! love the idea of rosemary in them.

  11. Quick question on the sea salt – did you use fine grained or the more coarse stuff? I assume the fine grain but don’t want to make these too salty. They sound delicious and easy!

  12. Erin, I’m so glad you posted this cracker recipe! We were contemplating a “movie night” tonight (at home) and I was musing about what to make for a snack… these sound delicious!

  13. I think I could actually make these… it’s a dealing with dough (one of my fears) but I still may just do it. I love the idea of making your own crackers. :) Glad you had a great time in the kitchen. I cooked up a storm yesterday too because cold weather was hitting our area and since I take my pictures outside I didn’t want to freeze my behind off. LOL! Have a great weekend!!

  14. Yum! I love rosemary and the combo of rosemary and olive oil is always a win! Definitely saving this recipe.

  15. These sound AMAZING! I really need to try making my own crackers some time, and this would be a great place to start.

  16. The rosemary and olive oil definitely make those crackers gourmet! What a great snack.

  17. Ooo, I love home made crackers and these look fantastic, Erin.

  18. There is nothing like homemade crackers and to have rosemary and olive oil in them just takes them to the next level of amazing!

  19. I’ve never made homemade crackers but now I want to!!!! They sound awesome!

  20. Those look amazing..would love to try them, and recipe is a keeper for sure..ok midnight snacking thought just kicked in:)))
    Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  21. I just bought crackers at the grocery store today…and these look so much better! PS: I have a giveaway going on that I think you’ll be in to!

  22. Those crackers look perfect. Who would have thought they were so easy?!?!

  23. Hm, this is my kind of baking! You don’t even need to use a rolling pin? I’m horrible to make dough flat using it – you can tell I have no baking skills. I can imagine my kids will enjoy eating this, and maybe making it too. I keep this in my list to make with the kids! Have a great weekend!

  24. Thanks for the shout out sweetheart!! ♥
    These are the best crackers ever! And easiest to make!

  25. Gorgeous. Homemade always better. The photos are fantastic.

  26. I always love making bread when we have company for the same reason! Nobody can resist bread fresh out of the oven!

  27. This recipe looks amazing and super easy. How many crackers did it make?

  28. I’m loving these crackers, Erin! The rosemary is a great touch!

  29. What a cool recipe!

    This was super-simple and SO yummy! I cheated and rolled it out on parchment paper and it worked beautifully! Such a nice little addition to a big, steaming bowl of beef vegetable soup. Mmmm…..

  31. Making my own crackers is definitely on my list of things to eventually do! You did a great job with yours =)

  32. Erin, the hubby and I both enjoyed these crackers for our movie night snack — they were so quick to make, too! Thanks for a great recipe!
