Easiest saltines recipe: a delicious pastry

I recall growing up and, on New Year’s Eve, helping my mother prepare some delicious saltines (helping to bake or to eat :P). I always loved them – and the smell in the house so I wanted to make some this year. But I had to try the recipe before the big moment so to say – so I did that last week. And the saltines were simply delicious. As the recipe is very easy to make – and the result is awesome – I decided to share it here with you – maybe give you a thought on what to bake these days, or whenever you feel like eating some homemade tasty pastry.

Ingredients (for two oven trays):

  • 400 gr. cottage cheese
  • 180 gr. cream (a cup, not very full)
  • 250 gr. cow cheese/feta cheese (not extremely salted)
  • 80-100 gr. cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 gr. of butter (one pack) – if you don’t have butter, margarine works too
  • about 1 kg. flour. Weight may vary depending on the consistency of the composition. For instance, I needed 1.2 kg.
  • 1 baking powder
  • a pinch of salt (if the cheese is unsalted, you might have to add more salt)

For anointed:

  • 4 yolks (even 5 if the eggs are small)
  • caraway
  • poppy seeds
  • 50 grams grated cheese


First, grate the cow cheese/feta and the Swiss cheese.

Then, the cottage cheese, feta (cow cheese), Swiss cheese, sour cream, eggs and soft butter (I admit that I melted it – I stored it in the freezer and I melted in a “bain marie”, hence the extra flour, but you can use usual butter and leave it several hours in the kitchen, until it becomes) mix with a pinch of salt.

After that, add gradually the flour and baking powder and mix until you obtain homogeneous dough that does not stick to hands.

On a surface in your kitchen of your choice – I put some aluminum foil on the table – sprinkle a little flour and then place the dough. Lay the dough until it has 0.5 cm in height.

Cut the dough as desired – I used a knife with a longer blade, but you can a  pizza wheel if you have one or you can make round shaped saltines  with a glass.

Put a baking sheet pan on the oven tray and then place on it the saltines.

Using a brush, brush with eggs the saltines (each one) – to acquire that beautiful golden color – and sprinkle some topping: Swiss cheese, caraway or poppy seeds. You can also make combinations or use other toppings – emmentaler is a choice.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and bake for 25 minutes at 190 degrees (depending on the oven, check the looks of the saltines after 20 minutes) .

And that’s all! Enjoy your homemade saltines!

You can eat them warm from the oven, or cold – we liked them hot, but we loved the more when they were cold.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come
    across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not
    enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something
    regarding this.
