Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a small bowl with water; sprinkle over yeast. Let stand 5 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk together flour and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Stir yeast mixture and add to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment along with, salt, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup olive oil, and flour-cinnamon mixture. Mix until a dough comes together and pulls away from the sides of the bowl, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer dough to a large bowl and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Keep in a warm place and let rise until doubled in size, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

  • Punch down dough. Cover with a damp kitchen towel and then with plastic wrap and transfer to refrigerator for at least 8 hours and up to 2 days.

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees. With racks in center of oven. Remove dough from refrigerator and let come to room temperature. Cut dough in half. Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thick on a lightly floured work surface. Using the tines of a fork, poke holes in dough. Using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut dough into 2-by-7-inch rectangles; transfer rectangles to baking sheets.

  • Mix together remaining 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush the top of each rectangle with remaining 1/2 cup olive oil and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Transfer baking sheets to oven and bake until browned, 25 to 30 minutes.

I tried making this recipe today, following the correct amts. of oil. It was too powdery and I kept trying to make it work. It looks like it's going to be very tough. I think I overworked it now! Too much trouble.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has had a problem with this recipe, the liquid to flour ratio is definately not right. Ive ended up with dough that can be used for the foundations of my dream home..!! but I will persevere and let you know.

The recipe calls for 3/4 c olive oil. Use 1/4 c for making the dough and 1/2 c for brushing the dough strips. PHT

The printed recipe uses 3/4 cup olive but the video says 1/4 cup. Which is correct before I attempt this recipe?

I also had trouble with these. I ended up baking at a higher temperature and for many more minutes than called for, only to result in a hard "bread" rather than a crisp cracker. Can someone help?

I think perhaps the liquid or flour measurements are incorrect -- my Kitchenaid bowl is full of a powdery mess instead of a dough! Very disappointing, as I followed the recipe very, very carefully.

I also had some trouble with this. The temp was either too low or the time too short. I tried 275 but the time was still too shot. Plus, I was hoping these would be crisp but mine turned out soft (not doughy). I didn't want to leave them in so long that they would become too hard. I used only half the amount of oil and sugar/cinn. for the topping and it was plenty. Some expert info re: the nuances of the recipe would be helpful.

Are you sure the temp and/or time for this are correct? I've had mine in the oven for almost an hour - they are just beginning to brown and are nowhere near looking like the picture. Followed the recipe to a T - can't imagine what else is wrong?
