ffwD ~ Lyonnaise Garlic and Herb Cheese with Homemade thin wheat Crackers

Share

Excuse me while I type with my mouth full.

I am in food heaven:)

This week’s french friday’s with Dorie  recipe was Garlic and Herb Cheese.
The most difficult part of this recipe was finding a proper substitute for the fromage blanc  – which I could NOT find anywhere.
I do not care for ricotta.  Goat cheese seemed to be too strong, so I decided to take a BIG leap and went with Mascarpone.

Delicious – but what do I know.

I also thought that crackers would make a nice addition, and I have been meaning to try a thin wheat cracker recipe I found..

I may never buy crackers again.

With the cheese, some tomatoes, and just a bit of prosciutto – I’m a VERY happy lady.

Hopefully, I can save some for my hub and kids.

For the crackers:
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter

combine the flour and salt – and then cut in the butter

add 1 tbsp agave (honey would also be good)
1/4 cup of milk (you may need to add an extra tbsp if too dry)
and 1 tsp vanilla

mix until just combined

roll out to about 1/4 – 1/8 inch
cut using a pizza cutter

bake on a parchment lined sheet @400F for 8 minutes
I flipped mine after four minutes so that they would brown evenly

watch them carefully they will burn
