Whole Wheat Sesame Seed Crackers

Since I have figured that baking is not "Complicated" , I've become a fan of baking. Cookies and crackers are another step towards my baking journey. I nowadays try to make new recipes of cookies and crackers. I choose to make them in little quantity, so that I get another chance of making new flavour of them.

I use to buy sesame seed cracker from shops, as I do LOVE them with my tea. So thought to try baking them myself and with wheat flour. Aim was to get right crunch and flavour. So tried my hands on this recipe and thankful to say that I got almost there.

I still feel it needs a bit of tweaking, which I need to figure out. I'll update the changes, once I'll perfect the taste I want. Kids and family was happy with the way I made them, as they liked the subtle flavour of black pepper and seeds.

Very easy and quick recipe for any teatime gathering. You can top them with different topping of cheese, condiments or dips. Try the recipe in your kitchen and leave your feedback in the comments below..............Until next time, Happy Cooking Friends, Saumya
