Lavash Crackers

BBA #17

These ‘crackers’ were really tasty!  The dough was just as Peter Reinhart described; silk smooth and hard, yet relatively elastic.  I was worried when i first started kneading because the dough took a while to homogenize. Eventually it did come together and pass the windowpane test.

After it FINALLY doubled (after profing for about 2 hours), I rolled it out to esentially cover the sheet pan (the book said to make a 12″ x 15″ rectangle), yet the dough was still too thick.  Next time , i will cut the dough in half before rolling it out and roll it until about 1/8″ thick.  I topped the crackers with four different spices: black sesame seeds, garlic-ginger medditeranian spice blend, paprika, and kosher salt., and sliced the sheet into diamond shapes before baking.  They baked for about 25-26 minutes and tasted GREAT with red pepper hummus.

Wow! Those are totally beautiful. I love that you made stripes with the spice blends – great idea. And that’s a good heads-up on the thickness. I’ll try to remember that when I get to these in a couple of weeks.

Thanks! These were REALLY REALLY good! I am definitely making them again. At this thickness they reminded me a lot of naan bread. Another tip i should have included in the post is that they get stale quick, but can be revived by toasting or broiling for a minute or two.

How pretty those look. Love the different spice blends. I think you are the only person in the chasllenge still on schedule. I seem to have fallen victim to the lazy hot days of summer, although it’s not so lazy. I’m up at the cottage and entertaining guests every weekend. All anyone wants is bagels and sticky buns!!

Comment by saltandserenity

It has been pretty tough to juggle bread baking with so many other activities going on. I’m pretty envious of you, though – I really want to make those sticky buns and bagels again!

Loved the look of your crackers. Thanks for the heads up about dividing and conquering the dough.
