Megans Cookin: The Daring Bakers Make history!

The Daring Bakers Make history!

So I'm sitting at the computer late at night, barely able to keep my eyes open, when what should I come upon? Some Daring Baker's posts on this months challenge.

WHAT? ALREADY? BUT, BUT, it cant be that time already!

Does it seem the older you get, the faster the time flies?

Well... it is The Daring Baker's Time and this months challenge is making history. We've put down our sugar, butter and eggs this month and bring to you... Lavash Crackers!

This recipe came together really quick if you don't count the rising (90 minutes) time. I put it all in my kitchenaid and let the machine do the work. It rolled out very easy for me but I think it was a little thin in the middle. It was pretty dark and crispy but not quite burned. I flavored the crackers with three different spices. the right side was sea salt, the middle was a garlic mixture and the last was a ground coriander.

I must admit, I dropped the ball on this challenge. We were suppose to pair this with a vegan dip. My crackers didn't even get off the baking sheet to a platter, let alone be hanging out with some bowl of salsa or dip .This cracker would of been a great scooper with some delightfully delicious dip. But your not gonna find any dips here. But if you go to the Daring Bakers Blogroll, you'll find hundreds of them there. And you know what? The holidays are coming, you might want to bookmark a few of those dips for when family gets together.

Thank You to alternative bakers Natalie from Gluten A Go Go and Shel from Musings from the fishbowl for picking this vegan/gluten free, history making challenge. It was nice to have something savory and lite. The recipe can found at either one of their sites.

I love my kitchenaid too - it made this recipe so easy! I know what you mean about time flying!

You make a great point that although dips are great, they aren't necessary to make these crackers tasty in and of themselves.

Great idea for multiple flavors. I almost used my KA, but decided to try it according to Reinhart's instructions to see how it would turn out.

I know tiume sure flies. Well they must have been good if they were gone before you made the dip. We will probally think twice about buying crackers now.

Looks like it turned out great! I loved the simplicity of this challenge. Sometimes those tough ones put me over the edge!

90 minutes rising? My dough took all day to get moving. Sigh. Your sprinklings sound yummy!

Who needs a dip when you have homemade crackers? Actually, I've only had store bought crackers, but the recipe doesn't look too complicated. I'll have to try this out, maybe for the holidays.

I think maybe the key is to make the dip before the crackers. I found the warm crackers to be delicious and was halfway done eating them before I came up with a dip!

I like how you baked as one big piece and broke it after baking! That's a time saver!
