How to make oregano polenta crackers

These cornmeal crackers are so quick and easy and you can experiment to find the exact combination of cracker thickness and baking time. Our recipe calls for a mix of  flour and polenta which gives great crunchy texture and delicious flavour. Let's check how to make these crackers:


  1. Combine PLAIN FLOUR and POLENTA in a medium bowl, add a pinch of SALT and cubed BUTTER which should be rubbed into dry ingredients.

  2. Add DRIED OREGANO then slowly pour the water and work with your hands to make a dough. 

  3. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface as thinly as possible and cut into desired shapes. Prick each cracker with fork a few times so prevent from puffing and bake them in the oven for about 5-6 minutes or until they start to brown. Obviously, baking time will depend on the thickness of crackers.
