Recipe created exclusively for DaVita.com by DaVita dietitian Sara from California.

Portions: 12     Serving size: 4 crackers + 1 tablespoon dip

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons peach preserves or jam
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose white flour
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons Mrs. Dash® onion and herb seasoning blend
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 egg white

Preparation

  1. In a small bowl combine yogurt or sour cream, peach preserves and mustard. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 °F.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, Mrs. Dash seasoning and sugar.
  4. Make a well in the middle of dry ingredients. Add water, oil and egg white. Mix together until dough forms.
  5. Flour a dough board and knead dough for 3-4 minutes. Divide into 4 pieces and form each into a ball.
  6. On lightly floured board roll dough ball out until very thin.
  7. Cut into cracker rounds or strips and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Pierce with a fork to keep dough from bubbling.
  8. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes until crackers start to brown and crisp. Be careful not to overcook.
  9. Repeat with each dough ball to make 4 dozen crackers.
  10. Serve crackers with Peachy Dip.
