Christmas Crackers

Christmas Crackers:

These crackers are so good to serve as a nibble with  Christmas drinks or a summery barbecue. I used Carwari Certified organic sesame flour which is made of ground sesame seeds.Light brown in color it has a high protein and calcium content and is gluten free.

I discovered it at IE produce when I dropped by for my Christmas veggies this morning.

To make a Gluten Free version I used Healtheries Gluten Free Baking Mix instead of plain flour and added a few drops of sesame oil to the dough.

I adapted it from an Annabel Langbein recipe:


1 cup of  plain flour
1/2 cup of sesame flour
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh origano / 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup of water

Topping One:

grated parmesan
black pepper

Topping Two
sesame seeds
black pepper


Line a oven tray with baking paper or a silicone sheet.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C

Mix the plain flour, sesame flour, oregano and salt together.
Stir in the oil and water,
Divide dough into 4 balls.
Roll each out very thinly between two sheets of glad wrap/baking paper
Remove top sheet of glad wrap/baking paper

Sprinkle either grated parmesan or sesame seeds on top.
Grind black pepper over the top.

Put glad wrap/baking paper over the top again and roll out once more so that the topping sticks to the dough.

Cut into squares and rub each lightly with some olive oil before baking for  about 12 minutes or until just starting to become golden,
