Beth Dooley’s Hazelnut Parmesan Crisps

Beth Dooley's Hazelnut Parmesan Crisps

Yield 48 crackers

These crisp and toothy crackers are made with hazelnut flour, and make a terrific companion to the Winter Squash Salad, soups, stews, and are a wonderful gluten-free addition to a cheese tray. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup hazelnut flour
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • Generous pinch of coarse salt
  • Generous pinch of red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 275°. Lightly grease a sheet pan or cover with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together to form a stiff dough. Turn the dough out onto the prepared baking sheet (it will be very crumbly). Using a rolling pin and your hands, work the dough into a thin rectangle that covers the baking sheet.
  • Using a pizza cutter, bench scraper, or sharp knife, cut the dough into 48 rectangles. Bake until the crackers are crisp, and the cheese is melted and started to darken, about 35-45 minutes. Remove the sheet pan from the oven. Allow the crackers to cool on the sheet pan and then remove to continue cooling on a wire rack.
