You will also need a large mixing bowl and a fine sieve to make your crackers.

Sift flour, salt and baking powder and place into a large mixing bowl.

Cut cold butter into small chunks and “cut” into the flour until it reaches a grainy consistency.

Add milk and egg and knead until it becomes a stiff dough. Roll the dough out really thin. You can cut the dough into squares or you can also cut circles.

Prick little holes in the crackers with a fork and bake them in a 400 degree preheated oven for about 10 minutes.
