This recipe adapted from "Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook"
(Clarkson Potter, 1999).
Yield Makes 20 crackers
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon coarse salt
Pinch of white pepper
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary, plus extra sprigs for garnish
3 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup finely grated (2 1/2 ounces) Parmesan cheese
5 tablespoons sour cream
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
|Parmesan-Rosemary Icebox Crackers|
Transfer dough to a work surface. Shape dough into a 2-inch-wide log. Wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
Heat oven to 325 degrees. Slice chilled log into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Transfer slices to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Dip a sprig of rosemary into egg white, and place in center of a cracker slice; repeat with remaining rosemary and crackers. Bake immediately, rotating sheet once, until crackers are golden brown and firm in the center, 25 to 35 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool.
