The Bread Baker’s Apprentice, Lavash Crackers

Peter Reinhart knows his baked goods.  He knows them rather well.  This lovely little item is tucked into his,  The Bread Baker’s Apprentice,  pages 178-180.   And, while I am lagging in the rear pack of bakers of the wonderful BBA challenge, I’m still in the game.  I’m just taking a little bit longer than the rest of you.  I have a list of excuses a mile long, but none of them are worth two cents.  Besides, as long as the oven is warm, and the journey is, does anything else matter?

I didn’t think so.  ;)


Quick!  Pronto!  Grab


a cracker while you can….. 

What’s not to love about a cracker; crisp, snappy and low-cal, unless of course you eat the entire contents of the daily bake.

Okay.  I had help.  The doggie happened into the room lured by the proceeds of  Smell-O-Vision.  It was all we could do to refrain from opening the oven door before bake time completed.  (Shhh, Hannah!  don’t tell anyone!)

Like a small child in the midst of a free-for-all playdough extravaganza, the spice cabinet held me its hostage.  I sprinkled  the likes of: poppy and sesame seeds, a caraway/celery seed combo, sweet intoxicating smoked paprika, flax seeds, garlic powder, and crushed rosemary.

At one point I teased myself into believing these would be wonderful alongside some homemade spinach and artichoke dip, but that fancy lasted all of two minutes. Who has time to whip up dip when they are stuffing two fists of goodness into their mouth?  Seriously.  Who needs dip anyway?

  1. They look great! You’re close to where I’m at in the challenge, so don’t feel like you’re too far behind! And there’s a whole subgroup of “slow and steady” bakers that are right about the same place. We’ll finish eventually!


    • Thanks, Nicole! I’ve never met a Peter Reinhart inspired baked good that I didn’t like. (My ever expanding waistline is proof POSITIVE!) I’m looking forward to my next bake … hopefully, tomorrow.


  2. looks yummy! i would definitley like the dip to go with it :)


  3. You used all the crayons in the box too didn’t you?


    • Lol! I did…and then I grabbed the glue sticks, heavy-weight construction paper, safety scissors, and took to the corner. Come join me…oh the fun we will have! ;)
