  • cups Wholewheat flour

  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup Dry fruit, finely chopped (dried cherries, raisins, dates, apricots etc.)
  • 2 tsp Demerera Sugar (for sprinkling)

  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat it into 9"x13" rectangle about ½" thick. Wrap with plastic and chill for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Preheat the oven 325°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cut the dough into half and roll each piece into ⅛"~¼" thick. Trim the edges (save the scraps to re-roll) and cut the dough into 1½" squares or diamonds.
  • Transfer the crackers to the prepared baking sheet and prick each one with a fork. Sprinkle demerera sugar on top and bake for 16~18 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • Remove the crackers out of the oven and let them cool on pan. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
