I really want to write my experience when I baked these Ritz cracker. but it is already late night here and it is been a week since I updated my blog. So I am jumping to the recipe directly to day. This recipe is adopted from spicy treats where she adopted it from Cupcake project.
Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
Makes: more than 3 dozens (based on the thickness of Ritz cracker, It might vary)
All Purpose Flour / Maida / Plain Flour – 1 cup
Baking Powder – 1 and 1/2 teaspoon
Sugar – 1/2 tablespoon
Salt – 1/4 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon for topping
Cold unsalted butter – 3 tablespoon + 1 and 1/2 tablespoons for brushing, melted
Oil – 1 tablespoon
Water – 1/3 cup
1) Preheat the oven to 400F. Line the baking tray with the baking sheet.
2) In a mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix well till all the ingredients are incorporated well.
3) Add cold unsalted butter to the mixing bowl and mix well.
4) Next, add oil and mix well.
5) Now, Start adding water slowly / little at a time and mix the flour using your hand. Add water till you get a smooth dough.
6) Very slightly knead it and divide into medium sized balls.
7) With the help of flour, roll out each medium sized dough balls as thin as you can.
8) Using a cookie cutter cut the dough. Use any of your favourite shaped cookie cutter.
9) Arrange them in baking tray. Repeat this step for remaining dough balls.
10) Using a fork, make holes in each of the ritz pattern. Putting holes in the cookie helps the cookie to bake correctly.
11) Bake them in preheated oven for 10 minutes or until the crackers become slightly golden brown. It took 15 minutes for me to get crisp cookies
12) When cookies are in the oven, melt the remaining butter and mix it with salt.
13) When the cookies are out of oven, brush them immediately using the melted butter and salt mix. I skipped this part and added more salt while making dough. It is up to you to prepare your preference.
14) Cool slightly and enjoy with tea.
