Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, Parmesan cheese, and cubed butter.
  3. Cut the butter and cheese into the flour mix by using a pastry cutter if you have one, or two knives like I did, until you get a sand-like mixture.
  4. Pour in the heavy cream and mix the ingredients with a wooden spoon until a dough is formed.
  5. Sprinkle flour on a piece of parchment paper and use a floured rolling pin to roll the dough out to a ¼-inch thickness. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into small rectangular pieces that are evenly sized.
  6. Place the dough rectangles on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, leaving 1 inch of space between each. Use a fork to poke holes in the crackers.
  7. Sprinkle the tops with salt and chopped fresh rosemary. Use your fingers to lightly press the rosemary down onto the surface.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes, until golden brown.
  9. Allow the crackers to cool fully on the baking sheet before storing or serving.

I prefer to grate my parmesan fresh, using a microplane or standard box grater.

Feel free to leave out the rosemary or replace it with a different type of herbs, if you prefer.

Step 2 – Prepare the Dough

In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, cheese, and butter.

Cut the dough into 30-40 small rectangles, or diamond shapes of equal size. This will help them to bake evenly.

Transfer the crackers to the preparing baking sheet, making sure to leave at least 1 inch of space between each cracker.

Step 3 – Prep and Season

Poke holes in each cracker with a fork, in a checkerboard pattern. This helps them to bake evenly and releases steam during baking.

Sprinkle the tops with salt and chopped fresh rosemary. A coarse or flaked salt is great for this, like Maldon, sel gris, or fleur de sel.

Step 4 – Bake Until Golden Brown

Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Tuck in and Enjoy!

I like to serve these crackers as an appetizer before meals, and they’re excellent spread with a soft, fresh cheese or pate. These tasty snacks store well for at least a week in an airtight container.
