Excuse me while I type with my mouth full.
I am in food heaven:)
This week’s french friday’s with Dorie recipe was Garlic and Herb Cheese.
The most difficult part of this recipe was finding a proper substitute for the fromage blanc - which I could NOT find anywhere.
I do not care for ricotta. Goat cheese seemed to be too strong, so I decided to take a BIG leap and went with Mascarpone.
Delicious – but what do I know.
I also thought that crackers would make a nice addition, and I have been meaning to try a thin wheat cracker recipe I found..
I may never buy crackers again.
With the cheese, some tomatoes, and just a bit of prosciutto – I’m a VERY happy lady.
Hopefully, I can save some for my hub and kids.
For the crackers:
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter
combine the flour and salt – and then cut in the butter
add 1 tbsp agave (honey would also be good)
1/4 cup of milk (you may need to add an extra tbsp if too dry)
and 1 tsp vanilla
mix until just combined
roll out to about 1/4 – 1/8 inch
cut using a pizza cutter
bake on a parchment lined sheet @400F for 8 minutes
I flipped mine after four minutes so that they would brown evenly
watch them carefully they will burn
For the cheese recipe – get Dorie’s book : Around My French Table
