Never thought I'd make my own crackers. They didn't really seem worth the effort. However, I've made quite a few batches over the past couple weeks. Worth the effort. And turns out, it doesn't require much effort. Now I can eat my favorite dips again. Okay, actually, I was still eating the dips. I just ate them with a spoon, which is not as satisfying as a crunchy cracker.
I originally found a recipe for Almond Thins on the LowCarbFriends.com in a forum, and have seen variations of this recipe all over the web. I'm not sure where this recipe originated...so if it is yours let me know and I will cite your recipe!
Almond Crisp Crackers
1 cup almond flour
1 egg white
3 Tb fresh rosemary
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Mix all ingredients (except kosher salt) together until you have a uniform "dough." Place the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and then use a rolling pin to create a thin sheet. (I wouldn't make them thicker than 1/4".) Sprinkle the top with kosher salt. Score the dough into cracker-sized rectangles with a pizza cutter. Then bake for 12 minutes or so at 350 degrees.
My hubby and I were going to serve this snack when our guests arrived this past weekend. But, turns out they were a few hours later than they had hoped, so we devoured these crackers with brie and pear slices in a savage manner that was far less elegant than what this particular snack calls for! (I topped the brie with 2 teaspoons of a Crofter's Just Fruit Spread. It has less sugar than a traditional jam, and just a little goes a long way in this snack. The crackers are pretty low carb, but I still watch my portions, especially with the pear and the fruit spread.)
Other yummy cracker recipes I have found:

And if you have brie left...first of all, you have stronger will power than I do, and secondly, you could try a delicious looking mushroom brie omlette by Carolyn at All Day I Dream About Food!
