  • Combine flour, salt and yeast in a bowl
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk the egg with the melted butter/oil and lemon juice
  • Combine the wets with the dries and stir until dough forms
  • Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out to about 1/8  inch thickness
  • With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut dough into desired cracker size (I use a ruler with a pizza slicer to get them straight and even) and sprinkle the top with more sea salt
  • Slide the bottom piece of parchment and crackers onto a cookie sheet
  • Bake at 350 from 12-15 minutes until golden
  • The outer crackers will brown the fastest, remove those and continue to cook the remaining crackers


I used melted butter to make these have a bit more of a "creamy" taste, but expeller-pressed coconut oil will work for dairy-free option.
