Shamrock Crackers

Easy Festive Crackers

Use a Cookie Cutter

It is easy to make festive crackers for special occasions like St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted green shamrock crackers but didn’t want to make them from scratch. I used a shamrock cookie cutter and spinach wraps (or spinach tortillas). An easy way to cut the crackers is to place the wraps on a cutting board. Press the cookie cutter into the wrap, and applying pressure, slide the cookie cutter back and forth to cut through the wrap.

Brush the Crackers with Oil

After cutting all the crackers, place them on a baking sheet. Brush olive oil onto the top side. Flip the crackers, brush the back with oil, and then sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Place the baking sheet into the oven. Halfway through the cooking time, flip the crackers to toast both sides.

Gluten-Free Wraps

You can also use gluten-free wraps for this recipe. They work as well as regular wraps.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a shamrock cookie cutter and a cutting board, cut out "shamrocks" from the wraps. Press the cookie cutter firmly into the tortilla and slide it on the cutting board to cut through the wrap.
  3. Place shamrocks onto a baking sheet. Brush the crackers with olive oil. Turn them over and brush the other side.
  4. Sprinkle with salt.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes. Turn over the crackers and bake for 3-5 minutes longer until the crackers are crispy. If chewy, they are underbaked and will need to bake a few minutes longer.
Recipe Notes

Tortillas

I used Mission brand 12-inch wraps. A 3-inch cookie cutter yields about 7 crackers from each wrap. I also baked the leftover wrap pieces to supplement the shamrock crackers. You can use 8-inch tortillas; they yield 4-5 crackers per wrap.

Cookie Cutter

Tip:  Use a cookie cutter with a comfort grip to make cutting through the tortilla wraps easy.

Baking

Bake the crackers for the least amount of time, so they retain most of their green color. If baked too long, they will turn brown.

Gluten-Free

You can use gluten-free wraps or tortillas for this recipe.
