INGREDIENTS

INGREDIENTS 12 SERVINGS

  • 1 3/4 cups (425 milliliters) plus 2 teaspoons (10 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 8 tablespoons (113 grams) cold unsalted butter , cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup (175 milliliters) light brown sugar , packed
  • 3/4 teaspoons (4 milliliters) baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons (10 milliliters) Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1 milliliter) salt

Preparation

  • 1 Beat flour, butter, sugar, baking soda and cinnamon with an electric mixer on medium speed just until mixture comes together, but is still sandy in texture, about 4 to 6 minutes. (If using a stand mixer, be sure to use the paddle attachment, not the whisk.)
  • 2 Whisk egg and salt in small bowl until well blended. Add to flour mixture; mix on medium until a soft dough forms, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • 3 Wrap dough tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
  • 4 Preheat oven to 320°F (160°C). Roll dough to 1/8-inch (3-mm) thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place crackers on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  • 5 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Transfer crackers to wire rack. Cool completely. Decorate with your favourite icing, if desired.
  • 6 Test Kitchen Tips:
    •If you don’t have an electric mixer, don't worry! This dough can be mixed by hand!
    •Make dough up to 1 day in advance.
    •Pop dough scraps back in the fridge to chill, then re-roll to make more cookies.
    •Instead of icing, sprinkle crackers with a mix of demerara sugar and cinnamon before baking; press gently to make sure the mixture sticks to tops of crackers.
    •Try sprinkling crushed animal crackers over your favourite ice cream or morning yogurt for a little extra crunch.
