A cream cracker is a mild-flavored cookie, usually eaten with cheese or butter. Cream biscuits are very popular in Britain and many different brands are available in stores. Cream is an important part of the cookie recipe, serving as the liquid to make the dough and when baked it becomes crumbly. The name cream cracker derives from the inclusion of cream and the ease with which these crackers break.
Jelly is a good topping for cream cookies.
Biscuits are an extremely crumbly type of biscuit. They can be made in many different flavors, and one of the most common is cream. This gives the biscuit a very mild flavor, perfect for pairing with toppings such as cheese or different types of spreads. Most cookies are square, but they can be any shape. The outside sides of the cookies are usually golden brown and some parts tend to bubble during the baking process, leaving an uneven appearance.
The cream is used to make the dough for the creamy cookies.
To make a cream cracker, or batch of cream crackers, bakers use a few key ingredients. The basic recipe includes cake flour, yeast, sugar, salt and cream. These ingredients are combined to form a dough, which is then spread out and cut into pieces before being baked. The cookies are then baked for about eight minutes on each side before being allowed to cool. Wheat flour can also be used in place of cake flour in some custard cookie recipes.
Red wine is usually served with cream cookies.
A common way to eat a cream cracker is to put some cheese on top. Creamy biscuits can be presented after a meal with a selection of cheeses of your choice. The combination of cheese and crackers works because the cream cracker has a mild flavor, and its crunchy texture is well complemented by the softness of the cheese. Red wine or ruby port can be served as a side drink.
Cream cookies can also be eaten with a variety of other toppings such as butter or jam. These are common toppings, but virtually anything would do. Some people eat cream cookies without frosting, but this can make their mouths very dry.
