tip for rolling the dough

Roll out the dough as 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 baking paper, cut the crackers and then carefully pull the baking paper with the crackers onto baking tray. A proper rolling pin helps a lot with rolling the dough evenly. It works best with a large rolling pin with rotating handles.

freeze the dough for later

If you don't plain on making the full batch, the cracker dough should be wrapped tightly in plastic bag and can be frozen. Fully defrost the dough and then follow the rolling and baking instructions.
