I haven’t had much of a sweet tooth lately and prefer savory cheesy snacks over cookies or chocolate. This afternoon, I was craving Ina Garten’s Parmesan & Thyme Crackers – a recipe I first tried six years ago and it’s been a keeper ever since.
The consistency of these crackers is more like that of shortbread cookies. They are crumbly, rich and buttery, but these are not sweet. Instead, they are salty and cheesy and the thyme transforms them from something boring (and perhaps bland) to a delicious gourmet snack. By the way, these crackers are perfect to enjoy with an apéritif. (I’ll take a Ketel One on the Rocks with a twist.)
