Artisanal Crackers with Olive Oil and Rosemary – Flour, olive oil, water and rosemary are the backbone of these delicious and incredibly easy to make crispy crackers! You would pay a fortune in a gourmet food store for these. Get your cheeseboard ready…there’s a new cracker in town :).
We love how easy these are and how beautiful they look on a cheese plate!
We first posted this recipe in 2013…I know! Holy cow where have the years gone! Rachel was just kiddo and now she has a kiddo! I was, well not a kiddo, but certainly a wrinkle or two less than now. Not complaining, I like my wrinkles just fine (such a liar).
We used a standing mixer with dough hook to make this gourmet cracker dough but your hands will work just as well.
Such a simple recipe.
After your dough has rested 20 minutes.
Cut your dough into 8 pieces.
Each piece will make 2 big crackers.
You can easily adjust this to smaller or larger crackers by just using more or less dough.
The trick to making crispy Rosemary Crackers is to roll the dough out as thin as possible.
For some reason I do not own, nor have I ever owned, a rolling pin. I use a wine bottle….I used to use Rachels play dough rolling pin and I loved it! It was perfect! But I lost that on the move from Seattle to Palm Springs along with about a dozen other prized possessions. Where does that stuff go? Story for another time….
TIPS for the perfect Rosemary Cracker:
- Baked on a lightly oiled sheet pan, parchment lined or a silpat.
- Roll as thin as you can. You don’t want to see through the dough but make them fairly thin so they crisp up. The durable dough won’t tear.
- Preheat your oven!
- To make cheesey crackers, sprinkle your cheese on the cracker halfway through baking time. Because it takes 12 minutes to cook and the oven is pretty hot, the cheese will burn if left on the entire time (mmmm, how do you think I know that :).

These were delicious! I did roll them out so thin that they only took 7 minutes in the oven and had more of a tortilla chip consistency. Thank you so much for the easy recipe as well!

These are so good, very easy to make and delicious. My go to crackers. I used a soft, low protein plain flour which made the crackers crisper than when I used a regular plain flour. My family love them.
Better than store bought by far and easy to make! Thank you. It’s my “go to” cracker recipe.

Easy and delicious. Our new favorite crackers and they’re homemade!
Thanks for the recipe!!
Great recipe! Very simple and tasty.
These were so easy to make and a wonderful way to use my fresh rosemary. I did add some garlic to the dough and it came out great and they smelled amazing while they were baking. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Anyone tried substituting Almond Flour to make a low carb version?

Made these as written and they are amazingly delicious! Thank you for emphasizing the thinner, the better when rolling them out. Never will I buy crackers again.
Kathi & Rachel says
Thank you! So glad you loved them!
These are amazing but why is it that I can’t get the lovely bubbles in mine 🙁

I’m a cracker nut, plus I have so much rosemary on the terrace. Thanks for sharing.
Hi, I made these and they were delicious! I added fresh rosemary and salt directly to the floured surface, so these spices were integrated into the cracker dough as I rolled them out. Will try these with fresh parsley next time. Thanks, Megan
