Feta waffle crackers

Having a homemade snack in the house for kids is always a good idea. And, if they are not sweet is even a better idea.
I remember my mother doing these quite a lot when I was a small child. There were no electric machines back then, so she was using a manual iron press. It was a messy process but these snacks were quickly disappearing.

I wanted that taste again so I started searching for a good recipe. Making the dough is quick and easy with a standing mixer. Baking them though, it takes time even with a dedicated waffle cracker maker. It took me around 2 hours to bake them. But if you have time or small things to do aside this is quite convenient.
In the beginning it was a challenge to put some on the cooling rack. They were eaten by my kids before I was able to make a new batch.
As taste, hmmm they are great. The addition of the feta cheese makes them salty, although, if I do this recipe again I put more cheese for a even more pronounced flavor. They are great, however this is not my mother recipe taste or texture that I remember, so I'll have to ask for it. Let' crack now ...

  • 1kg of all purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 250g butter (room temperature)
  • 250g feta cheese (grated)
  • 100g sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate
  • juice of half a lemon

  1. Put the sodium bicarbonate in the lemon juice and mix.
  2. In the mixer bowl add all the ingredients and mix. You'll get a thick dough.
  3. Stretch the dough with a rolling pin making a sheet of 0.5cm thickness.
  4. Cut the dough with a big biscuit cutter (~10cm diameter).
  5. Bake the dough with a waffle cracker maker.
