These crackers are inspired by Trader Joe's Raisin Rosemary Crisps. Those things are dang addictive; I almost ate a whole box in one sitting. I made this homemade version using whole wheat flour and currants instead of raisins. You can use raisins or any other dried fruit that you want. Just chop up larger fruits into smaller raisin-sized pieces.

These crackers are actually just plain wheat crackers. I forgot to photograph the rosemary currant ones (before sending them off to my Foodie Pen Pal). Whoops!

You will need:

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp rosemary
1/3 cup currants (or raisins)
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flours, salt, sugar, rosemary, and currants. Add the oil and water and mix until a dough forms. On a floured work surface, roll out the dough as thinly as possible. Also try to roll it out as evenly as possible to prevent thinner crackers from burning before thicker ones are done.

Cut the crackers into desired shapes and transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet. Prick each cracker with a fork a few times. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until the crackers are lightly toasted and fragrant.

Cool completely before storing. Enjoy them with your favorite cheese, spread, or just straight up!
