These super buttery cracker bites can be loaded with cheese or munched just as they come. We must warn you that they are super moreish and it will be a huge challenge not to eat them all straigh from the cooling rack! They will, however, keep for a few days in an airtight container - should you have such a level of self-control!

Ingredients
  • 280g Most Marvellously Magical Plain Flour Blend
  • 1/2tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free baking powder (e.g. Dr. Oetker)
  • 30ml rapeseed oil
  • 110g salted butter, frozen
  • 120ml cold water
  • 30-40g salted butter, melted (for brushing)
  • Maldon sea salt flakes (for sprinkling)
Directions
  • Step 1 Heat your oven to 190c / 170c fan / gas 5.
  • Step 2 Put the flour, sea salt (not flakes) and baking powder together into a bowl and give a good whisk to fully distribute.
  • Step 3 Grab your frozen butter and grate it in 3-4 stages over the dry ingredients, stopping every so often to gently distribute the butter and cover in flour (you’re trying to stop it from clumping together).
  • Step 4 Add in the rapeseed oil and stir through with a knife.
  • Step 5 Next add the water. Again, stir through with a knife and then use your hands to bring the dough together into a ball. If the dough appears a little on the dry/crumbly side, slowly add more water (a teaspoon at a time) until it comes together).
  • Step 6 Wrap the dough in clingfilm and pop it in the fridge for 20 minutes to chill.
  • Step 7 Grab your dough from the fridge, sandwich it between two sheets of clingfilm and carefully roll it out to a thickness of around 3mm.
  • Step 8 Using a 5cm crimped pastry cutter, stamp out as many rounds as you can and carefully lift onto baking sheets, spacing the crackers a few centimetres apart. Gather any dough scraps together, reroll and cut until you’ve used up all the dough.
  • Step 9 Using either the prongs of a fork or a skewer, poke four holes into the centre of each cracker.
  • Step 10 Place the baking trays in the oven and bake your crackers for 6-8 minutes until they begin to turn a nice golden colour.
  • Step 11 Brush the top of the crackers with melted butter and sprinkle with Maldon sea salt flakes.
  • Step 12 Leave the crackers on the tray to cool/crisp up then get stuck in!
