BBA Challenge #17 – Lavash Crackers

I had a helper in the kid-tchen the day I made the Lavash Crackers.



I rolled out my dough and it took up a big area on my counter top.


I had read previously that some people had an issue getting their dough to roll out as thin as they wanted it. For some reason, I didn’t have that problem. Look at how thin I got this. A fraction of a centimeter.


The area of my dough was large enough that one single sheet pan would not cut it.


I topped one pan with coarse kosher salt and toasted sesame seed and the other with salt and poppy seeds.

They really turned out quite nice if I do say so myself.



Overall Impressions:
This was not difficult. Like I said, I heard of some people having problems getting the dough rolled out thin enough, but I for some reason did not encounter that issue.

I really rather liked the portions of my crackers that had the salt on top. It could have used a little less salt, according to my husband, however. But what that tells me is that I would likely mix some salt into whatever topping I was using for that extra flavor.

Would I make this again?
It’s a nice formula to have in the back of your mind, but I don’t know that I would actively seek out opportunities to make this like I might some other recipes. Although I think they would be really good with some hot Gorgonzola Spinach and Artichoke Dip.
