Honey Sesame Seed Crackers for #SundaySupper

Honey Sesame Seed Cracker Recipe

If you're anything like me, when faced with a crunchy snack mix assortment, I'm the one who picks out all the sesame seed crackers before anyone else can get to them. Yes, I'm also the girl who picks out all the cashews in an assorted nut mix too, but shhhh, don't tell.

It is because of my love for those yummy little sesame seed treats that I came up with my own version of Honey Sesame Seed Crackers for this weeks #SundaySupper theme: Super Eats for Game Day. I actually had to put a *save* note on these so my family didn't gobble them all up before I could take photos and so we'd have some left to snack on during the game. Jeez, I wonder where they got that annoying habit from? LOL

Honey Sesame Seed Cracker Recipe

Yield: 4-5 cups crackers    Prep Time: 45 minutes (including chill time)  Bake Time:  30 minutes

1 cup whole wheat flour (I used whole grain sprouted wheat flour), plus more for rolling.
1/2 cup spelt flour (or, if you'd rather you can use 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar (I used coconut palm sugar)
1 stick of cold butter, cut into 8 tablespoons
4 tablespoons honey, divided
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
2 1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
4 tablespoons ice water, divided

-In a food processor, or by hand a in a large bowl using a pastry blender, pulse/blend the flours, baking soda, salt, brown sugar until it forms a sand like consistency.
-Add in the butter, 2 tablespoons honey, sesame oil and 3 tablespoons ice water. Pulse/blend until the dough comes together into a slightly sticky ball, but one that holds together nicely.
-Add the the sesame seeds to the dough and using a wooden spoon and fold them thoroughly into the dough.
-Form the dough into a disc and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
-Roll the chilled dough out onto a lightly floured surface to 1/8" thickness.
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Using a pizza cutter or pastry wheel, cut the dough into whatever size shapes you like. I cut mine into approximately 1" squares.
-Transfer the crackers onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
-Mix together 2 tablespoons honey and 1 tablespoon water. *Note - It's easier to mix if you place it in a microwave for just a few seconds.
-Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the crackers with half of the honey mixture.
-Bake for approximately 10 minutes and then remove the crackers and brush them again with the remaining honey mixture.
-Return the crackers to the oven for another 10-15 minutes and then cool on a wire rack.
-Serve along with your favorite game day beverage :)

These are totally addicting, so do say I didn't warn you!
