Turkish-Spiced Pie Crust Crackers

There is nothing easer than buying a pre-made pie crust. All I have to do it unroll it and the options are unlimited. i had an amazing idea to create crackers out of a particular pre-made pie crust dough I recently bought. Let me tell ya, my children loved me that day because I made homemade cheese crackers. Yum.

I love cheese cracker, and so do the kiddos. But for a more “grown-up” cracker, I added all my favorite Turkish spices like oregano and garlic. What seperated these crackers from the ones on your local grocery shelves is the smokey sweet paprike. These crackers are so delicious and cruchy, you will want to make them again and again.


1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

Fresh cracked black pepper

1/4 cup cheddar cheese (optional)


Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit

1.) Sprinkle the Turkish spice mixture over the uncooked pie crust until the whole pie crust is completely covered.

2.) Cut the crust into desired shapes (I used a pizza cutter and cut long verticle slits then long horizontal slits to achieve square cracker shapes.)

3.) Bake in the oven at 350° Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with hummus or creamy guacamole.
