Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

rosemary parmesan crackers recipe from cherryteacakes.com
I am now "under contract." Well, I will be in two days. One of the sellers is out of state, blah blah blah, mailed contracts, etc. So, this means that on Friday I was freaking out and sanitizing every inch of my body from houses that had no roofs, and Monday I am in the process of buying one. A much cuter one...with a roof....and proper flooring. Yep. Saw it Friday, made and offer Saturday, was accepted Sunday, and now Monday morning is hitting me and we're scheduling inspections ..............and yes, the type-A personality caused me to start packing last night. I already have a board on pinterest of color palettes. Yep. I move at break-neck speed and the second best thing is that my boss-man will be out of town for two weeks and that means I can go and do all the inspections without any hassle from him...mostly because he won't know. Also good, it will give me time to pack, clean, call utility companies, and the myriad of other things I need to do. For any of you who have bought a house, please feel free to comment some advice, because WOW am I going to need it.

Before I run off, crazed, stressed and on the verge of screaming at the sky, just another friendly reminder that my giveaway ends in two days.

Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

1 1/2 cups finely grated Parmesan
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1-2 teaspoons crushed rosemary
1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons water
a dash of kosher salt

Combine all ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until it forms a coarse meal.

On a work surface, knead the dough until it is just combined. Form into a log about one inch in diameter. Chill the dough, wrapped in the wax paper, for 1 hour, or until it is firm enough to slice.

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut the dough into rather thin slices, arrange the slices 1 inch apart on wax paper. Cover with a second sheet of wax paper. Using a rolling pin, roll each piece until very thin.

Carefully move to parchment lined baking sheets, and bake them in batches in the middle of the oven for 6 minutes, or until they are golden around the edges. Remove from heat and allow to cool long enough to be flipped over carefully.

Put the trays back in to the oven for another 3-4 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Transfer the crackers carefully with a spatula to a rack, let them cool fully, and sprinkle them with additional rosemary.

  1. Congratulations on finding a house! What an exciting (and stressful) time! I love parmesan and thyme but I bet parmesan and rosemary would be even better! Can't wait to try these :)

  10. This recipe is lovely. Congrats on the house. That's so fab! We bought our first place about 4 years ago. We bought my childhood home after my dad passed. We renovated the whole upstairs and changed the landscaping in front and back. If you ever need advice let me know. I love this stuff. I ripped out walls, floors, I actually tiled 1000 square feet of tile and did the shower too. I refinished cupboards. We scraped off an entire house full of popcorn ceilings. It's so much fun, you will get addicted to it fast. So excited for you.

  14. Moving is ultra-stressful, but it's utterly worth it in the end... that said, I've been living in my house for almost four years now, and I still break out into hives at the thought of having to move again someday. :)
    The only advice I have for you is to pack a special box for your first night/morning, with stuff you'll need right away like an electric kettle, tea and/or coffee, some munchies, plates and cups and cutlery, basic cleaning supplies, toiletries, etc... that way, you don't have to worry about unpacking right when you arrive to find all those essentials.

    BTW, have followed you on Twitter and tweeted an entry. No clue if Canadians are eligible for the giveaway, but I do hope we are!

  15. I love those pinterest color palletes! If your "break neck" speed is anything like mine when I bought a house, you'll paint every room in an absurdly short time (and then again in two years) and have few remaining clothes without paint smudges. I never did learn, ten years and twenty shades later...Good luck with everything!

  21. Make a list and trust your instincts.(on buying!) The inspector is so important and if there are termites do not do a spot treatment, only a whole house is truly effective.

    Love this recipe.
