Homemade Saltine Crackers

words by: Merissa A. Alink


Making crackers from scratch is so much fun and the homemade versions taste SO much better and fresher than the boxed ones at the store. Homemade saltine crackers are very inexpensive to make and are perfect for pairing with cheese, tasty dips, or just for munching. These homemade saltine crackers aren’t a perfect match for store-bought saltine crackers, but they are nice and basic which makes them a great substitute.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6-7 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • plus a little more salt & butter for the tops


  1. Melt the butter and mix it well with the flour and salt.
  2. Add the tablespoons of water slowly, one at a time, and mix them in well. Don’t add too much water so the dough is too sticky. You want a nice smooth dough.
  3. Roll out the dough until it’s very thin, about 1/8in. Transfer the rolled out dough to a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Score with a pizza cutter. Brush the tops very lightly with butter and sprinkle with a little salt. You can leave out this step if you want unsalted crackers. Bake these at 400ºF for about 15 minutes. They will harden more once they start to cool.
  5. Enjoy these plain or with a dip.


For Best Results:

Lightly butter the top, score with a pizza cutter, and bake on a pizza stone.
