These are the most buttery, flavorful, crisp sourdough crackers you will ever have! Once you try these crackers you’ll never want to do anything else with your sourdough starter discard. Enjoy these crunchy, flaky crackers with cheese and fruit for a perfect snack.

Sourdough Discard Crackers

These are considered “sourdough discard” crackers because you use sourdough starter in the recipe, but it is not needed for rise, and it is not necessary to the baking process. So the starter is considered “discarded” into the recipe. I use stirred down active bubbly starter in these crackers.

The starter adds such delicious flavor to these crackers though. It may not contribute to the baking process, but it definitely give the best tangy flavor. Jon and I think these crackers taste like high class goldfish.







Sourdough Starter Crackers

You have options with these crackers. You can mix the dough, refrigerate the dough for an hour covered, then bake. Alternatively, you can let the dough ferment in the fridge for 24-48 hours before rolling, cutting and baking the crackers. A longer ferment can make these easier to digest, especially if you have sensitivities to non-sourdough gluten products.







Sourdough Crackers Recipe

This is such a simple recipe for sourdough crackers, and it’s best to weigh all your ingredients for the best crispiest texture. Here is everything you need to make the best sourdough crackers:

  • 200 grams sourdough starter, stirred down (starter should be fully hydrated, active, and ready to be fed)
  • 120 grams all purpose flour
  • 5 grams sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary chopped
  • oil, for brushing
  • Flake salt, for topping



one crispy baked sourdough cracker on a plate next to fresh rosemary. Light hits the cracker to show textured sea salt and rosemary baked into the dough.


Rosemary Crackers

My favorite herb to use in these crackers is fresh rosemary, hence the name of this recipe, but you can change it up. Try adding cheese and garlic, or thyme, or basil instead. I love sea salt and black pepper crackers too.

How to Make Butter Crackers

You are probably wondering how to make crackers by now. Well, there are just three easy steps to this recipe. First, you mix the dough. Second, you wrap the dough with reusable bees wrap or plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough. Third, you just need to roll, cut and bake the crackers. When cutting the crackers, you need to poke each cracker with a fork to ensure they don’t puff up in the oven.

These are butter crackers, so once they are baked and cooled, you should store them in an airtight container at room temperature so they don’t stale. I store mine in a big sealed weck jar.

Buttery Rosemary Sea Salt Sourdough Crackers

These are the most buttery, flavorful, crisp sourdough crackers you will ever have! Once you try these crackers you’ll never want to do anything else with your sourdough starter discard. Enjoy these crunchy, flaky crackers with cheese and fruit for a perfect snack.

  • Author: Kaitlynn Fenley
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 60 crackers
  • Category: Sourdough
  • Method: Baking

Ingredients

  • 200 grams sourdough starter, stirred down
  • 120 grams all purpose flour
  • 5 grams sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary chopped, plus extra set aside
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • Flake salt

Instructions

  1. Mix together the sourdough starter, flour, salt, butter, and rosemary. Knead until a smooth dough forms.
  2. Shape the dough into a small slab. Wrap tightly with reusable bee’s wrap or plastic wrap.
  3. To bake immediately, refrigerate for 1 hour. For a longer ferment refrigerate for 24 hours then proceed to the next step.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. Lightly flour a piece of parchment paper sized to fit your baking pan, and the top of the dough. (You may want to split the dough in half and work in batches. I had to use two sheet pans to fit all the crackers)
  6. Place the dough onto the floured parchment and roll it about 1/16 inch thick.
  7. Transfer the dough and parchment together onto a baking sheet.
  8. Cut the dough into about 1 inch squares; I suggest using a pizza cutter or cracker cutter.
  9. Poke each cracker all the way through a few of times with a fork; this will keep them from puffing up.
  10. Lightly brush with extra virgin olive oil and then sprinkle the salt over the top of the crackers.
  11. Bake the crackers for 20 to 25 minutes, until they’re starting to crisp and brown around the edges. Midway through, rotate the baking sheets.
  12. When browned and crisped to your liking, remove the crackers from the oven and allow to cool.
  13. Store crackers in an air tight container at room temperature for about a week or two. I like to store in a sealed glass weck jar.
