Thyme Crackers

Martha made this recipe on Martha Bakes episode 307.

  • Yield: Makes about 4 dozen
Thyme Crackers

Source: Martha Stewart Living, September 2005


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh thyme, plus small sprigs for garnish
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pulse the flour, thyme, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and sugar in a food processor until combined. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. With machine running, add cream; process until dough forms.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, briefly knead dough. Divide into 4 pieces; shape into rectangles. Wrap each in plastic; refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 piece of dough into a very thin rectangle. Transfer to a baking sheet. Score the dough into 4-by-2-inch diamonds. Brush with egg white, and sprinkle with salt. Garnish each diamond with a thyme sprig. Repeat with remaining dough.

  4. Bake until golden brown and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Break diamonds into individual crackers.

    These were fabulous! ! Great flavor and easy to make. Had them with a fall salad and soup for dinner--definitely added a nice kick. Will make these for next football party too. We keep snacking on them in the kitchen. Boyfriend noticed I have some of the dough left in the fridge and keeps asking "are you going to make more of those crackers? !?!!"
