If you have never thought to make your own crackers now is the time to start. They are incredibly easy, less than 5 ingredients and you get to control the flavor.  Za'atar is one of our favorite Israeli spices that makes these crackers addictive.

  • 40-45 crackersServings


  • 1¼ cup whole wheat or spelt flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons Jamie Geller Za'atar
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, such as Colavita


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a large bowl combine flour, salt, and za’atar, mix well.

3. Add hot water and extra virgin olive oil and mix everything together until a nice soft dough forms.

4. Divide the dough into two pieces. Working with one piece at a time on a sheet of parchment paper, roll the dough to about 1/16 inch thick. It’s okay if the edges are not perfect and straight, just try and make it as even as possible.

5. Place each parchment paper with dough onto a sheet pan, cut with a pizza cutter or knife into 1¼-inch squares. Bake at 350°F for 10 to 15 minutes until the crackers are dry and crisp. Cool before breaking apart with your hands. Store in an airtight container.
