Pecan Crackers

Pecan CrackersI was in the mood for a savory sort of snack the other evening. Looking online, I found a simple recipe for almond crackers that looked like it would do the trick. Upon opening up the cupboard, I discovered we didn't have any almonds I could use. Instead, I decided to try it with some pecans. They were so good, Adam and I (okay, in all fairness, mostly I) gobbled up the entire batch while watching The Marriage Ref on Hulu.

1 c chopped pecans (4 oz)
1 egg white
½ t salt
  1. Using a coffee grinder or food processor, pulse pecans until they form a fine meal.
  2. Stir in egg white and ¼ t salt until thoroughly combined.
  3. Divide dough into quarters. Roll each quarter into an 8x8 square between two pieces of parchment. Set on baking sheets and carefully peel off top parchment layer.
  4. Using a pizza cutter, slice each square of dough into 2-in crackers.
  5. Sprinkle remaining salt evenly over crackers.
  6. Bake at 325°F for 10-12 min until crisp and lightly golden.
  7. Let cool a few minutes on a wire rack before serving.
