A crisp, savory cracker with the ease of a slice-and-bake cookie, these snacks are flavored with Parmesan, almonds, and thyme, and come together easily in the food processor. Serve them with afternoon tea for a savory option, or set them out alongside an antipasti platter of marinated olives, seasonal fruits, and a creamy spread

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a food processor, pulse both flours, cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, lemon zest, and thyme. Add butter and cream cheese; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add lemon juice and pulse just until dough comes together.

  • Transfer dough to a work surface. Divide into two pieces, and shape each into a log about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap separately in plastic; refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to 2 days.

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Slice logs crosswise into rounds about 1/8 inch thick. Place rounds on parchment-lined baking sheets. Top each with a tiny thyme sprig (if using) and bake until firm and golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes.

  • Transfer baking sheets to wire racks and let crackers cool on pans 5 minutes, then transfer crackers to wire racks. Crackers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
