Almond Crackers

Dave isn't one to do things half way.  Dave doesn't do Christmas lights half way, between the lights and the nativity outside I tell people you can see our house from Mars during Christmas. Friends stop by to tell Dave how much they love the lights,  so we had lots of people driving by because they know there will be lights.  Our neighborhood is pretty good about holiday decorating, and this year was especially nice.  Our across the street and to the right neighbors had a yard full of Christmas cheer and our straight across the street neighbor had some festive lights.
So, friends will drive by to see the lights and often they stop in to say hi, have an adult beverage and spend a little time.  The holidays were the perfect time to do that.  I like to have something to nibble on when friends stop by to visit, and especially during the holidays when we get more visitors than usual, and cheese and crackers are a quick, easy thing to throw on a  plate and have a snack.

Now, we have friends stop by to see how we are progressing on the truck.  We visit about what we have found and it gives us the chance to have a break, a snack, and Dave has a beer.

I used to love cheese and crackers.  I could eat just that for a meal. So I decided to make some crackers that were Toni friendly and have on hand for such occasions.  Well, I like them so much I am having cheese and crackers for lunch this week.

Right now I'm loving some flaky salt or this home made everything bagel mix on top.  These are the perfect little bite.

Lunch at my desk this week.

Almond Flour Crackers
makes about 40 1-inch crackers
1 cup almond flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 300˚.

Mix almond flour, salt and baking powder, add egg and mix until fully combined.  Place on a piece of parchment paper and cover with another piece of parchment paper.  Roll out to about 1/8 inch thick.  Carefully pull off top parchment paper and cut into crackers (I use a ruler and pizza cutter to do this).  Transfer the bottom parchment paper with the crackers on to a sheet pan.  Sprinkle course salt, a little garlic powder or everything bagel seasoning.  Bake for 30-40 minutes until just turning golden brown.  Let cool completely and then break crackers apart on cut lines.
