Oatmeal crackers

Oatmeal crackers is something that has always been at the Christmas table in my family. At first it was my grandmother who baked them and after she passed away, my mother and aunt took over the baking of the delicious little crackers. This year was the first year that I didn't celebrated Christmas at home with my family and I felt that I needed something that reminded me of Christmas at home, oatmeal crackers. These crackers do not need to be eaten around Christmas, they're good enough and simple enough to do, to be eaten all year round.

Oatmeal crackers

1 l milk
1 kg oatmeal
50 g salt o hartshorn (ammonium carbonate)
500 g butter
400 g caster sugar
500 g plain flour


This is a large batch. It works perfectly fine to halve the batch, I did and got out about 40 crackers. Mix milk and oatmeal and let swell overnight in the refrigerator. Melt the butter and mix it with the rest of the ingredients. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to obtain a dough that is easier to work with. Divide the dough into 3 pieces and roll out as thin as you can. Punch out bite-sized crackers using a glass. Bake the crackers at 180 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes.
