Black Pepper and Thyme Olive Oil Crackers

Black Pepper and Thyme Olive Oil Crackers


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 Tbsp cracked black pepper

  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped

  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ¼ cup J. Olive Co. Black Pepper Olive Oil

  • ¾ cup whole milk

  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

  • Coarse sea salt, for topping


  1. Add flour, pepper, thyme, sugar, and salt to the bowl of a food processor and blend together.

  2. Pour in olive oil and pulse a few times so dough begins coming together.

  3. With the food processor on, pour in the milk and blend until a loose ball is formed.

  4. Remove dough from food processor and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Chill dough in refrigerator for about 1 hour.

  5. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  6. Split dough into two portions. Using one portion at a time, on a lightly floured surface, roll dough out into a large rectangle as thinly and evenly as you possibly can. The thinner you can get it, the better as it will result in a crispier cracker.

  7. Lightly brush dough with egg wash and sprinkle sea salt on top.

  8. Bake for 15-22 minutes, until crackers are getting crispy and turning golden. Check after 15 minutes. If crackers are still pliable and not totally crispy, return to oven, being sure to re-check every 2 minutes.

  9. Let cool completely before breaking into pieces of whatever size you choose.
