These amazing crackers can be made in only 30 minutes. You can also prepare them in advance and store in a jar, you can make them even days ahead and they will stay crispy.

They are totally versatille - you can experiment with different herbs, spices and seeds. Instead of sunflower seeds you can add sesame or poppy seeds. Give the crackers some spice with a dash of cracked black pepper or red pepper flakes.

how to make crispy sunflower seed crackers

For making these crispy crackers you will need only two mixing bowls, a rolling pin and small cookie cutter (we used flower shaped cutter). First take CREAM CHEESE and BUTTER from the fridge and leave to room temperature for half and hour. Then stir with a fork in one bowl to combine.

Combine PLAIN FLOUR and CORN FLOUR, BAKING POWDER and SALT in one bowl and knead together with cream cheese/butter mixture. Add sunflower seeds (blitzed in the food processor) and knead until incorporated. Rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Rolling the dough tips

Roll out the dough thin and as even as possible. This ensures even baking. If they are not thin enough, they will be rather chewy than crispy.

The best way to do this is to roll out the dough on a floured work surface or a pastry mat. A proper rolling pin helps a lot with rolling the dough evenly. It works best with a large rolling pin with rotating handles.

Once the dough is rolled out, cut desired shapes (we used small flower-shaped cookie cutter but feel free to use any other such as round or square). Bake in the oven for only 6 - 7 minutes, until the crackers becomes lightly brown. Remove them from the tray with cookie spatula to the bowl to cool.
