This is an extremely simple recipe for homemade crackers! Perfect for cheese or dips. Good with soup, too. 

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

Picture of Ingredients and Tools

2 cups of flour
1.5 Tablespoons of olive oil
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon salt
4 onces of cream cheese (half a block)
The cream cheese is optional, but worth it!


Mixer, measuring spoon & cups, rolling pin, fork, pizza cutter or knife,, and large circle stoneware ( I guess you could use a cookie sheet instead, but I prefer the stoneware)
it think we not use flower, it was mispelled..
I almost think we use flower.. Lol..  :D
Originally, before English spelling was standardized, there was only one spelling of the word.  The stuff you make bread with was called "flower"  because it was considered to be the best part of the wheat. 
As a strange consequence, that makes "whole wheat flour" an oxymoron.
Like "Government Work"... ;o)
No, "Government Intelligence."
mmh.. thats new to me.. thanks.. :D
Shredded Cheddar can be used as well.  Reduce or eliminate the oil and reduce the milk/water slightly.  And my favorite recommendation is to dry toast some sesame seeds (about 2 tablespoons for 2 cups of flour).  Also, try rolling the dough between two sheets of cellophane, remove the top sheet slowly-carefully), place the cookie sheet over the dough upside down (I don't have stoneware) and invert the whole shooting match.  This places the thinly rolled dough into the cookie sheet, of course you need to remove the bottom (now top) layer of cellophane prior to cooking, again slow and steady.  I will be trying this recipe tomorrow or the next day.  Great ideas, great instructable!!

There are edible flowers.  That would make for an interesting decoration.  LOL.
Interesting...I can honestly say I've never thought of making my own crackers.  What exactly does the cream cheese accomplish in your recipe, by the way?  How different do these taste sans cheese?

The cream cheese adds flavor.  It also makes the dough easier to work with. I've tested it both ways, cream cheese makes it turn out better.
