35 m 30 crackers27 kcals
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
3 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon salt, plus additional for top
3 tablespoons grated onion
3 tablespoons chopped mixed herbs, such as thyme and chives
1/2 cup whole milk
1 egg white, whisked
1 tablespoon seeds, such as sesame or poppy
Preheat the oven to 450˚F.
Combine the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, butter and salt in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low speed until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the onion, herbs, and milk; mix until just combined--do not overwork the dough.
Roll out the dough into a 1/8-inch-thick rectangle on lightly floured parchment paper. Brush the top with egg white and sprinkle with the seeds and some salt.
Transfer the dough and parchment to a baking sheet and cut into 2-by-3-inch rectangles.
Bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes.
