PureSpelt cheese crackers
Preliminary time: approx. 2 hours in a cool place
Preparation time: approx. 40 minutes
Baking or cooking time: approx. 12 minutes
For approx. 50 crackers
200 g PureSpelt half-white or Swiss brown flour with 20% grist
130 g of grated Sbrinz cheese
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of oregano
A little cumin, according to taste
120 g of butter, cold, cut into pieces
A light sprinkling of sesame seeds, white and black
Chili flakes, according to taste
For the dough, mix together the flour, Sbrinz cheese and spices. Add the butter and work until it is finely crumbled. Add the egg and possibly a little water and then fold into a dough; do not knead. Cover the dough and leave in a cool place for 1-2 hours or overnight.
Roll out the dough on a little flour to a thickness of approx. 5 mm. Cut out discs or stars and place them on the prepared baking tray; decorate them according to taste and put them in a cool place again for a short time. Bake the crackers for 10-12 minutes in the middle of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove from the oven and serve lukewarm or when they have cooled down.
If you prefer, form the dough into a roll of about 5 cm diameter, put it in a cool place for 1 to 2 hours and then cut it into slices about 5 mm thick and bake.
