These easy crackers are the perfect addition to your cheeseboard!


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C (fan)/gas mark 6. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  2. Sift the flour into a bowl and stir in the baking powder, sugar, and pinch of salt. Add the butter and rub it in with the tips of your fingers, as though you’re making pastry.
  3. Add the vegetable oil, water and chives, stirring until the ingredients come together to form a slightly sticky dough. Wrap the dough in cling film and refrigerate for ten minutes.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured worktop. If it is still particularly sticky, also dust the top with a little flour to make it easier to manage. Roll the dough out to the same thickness as a crepe. Using a 4cm wide round cutter, cut out the crackers and place them on the baking sheets. If you don’t have a round cutter, simply cut the crackers into squares using a knife.
  5. Poke several holes in the top of each cracker using a fork, before sprinkling with a little salt. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until crisp and golden. Serve with cheese and chutney.
