Thyme Olive (yes, olives) Crackers

Another cracker recipe for you to enjoy.  The original recipe called for rosemary.  Since I had made a rosemary cracker that afternoon I used thyme instead.  Thyme worked wonderfully and I am sure you will enjoy it too.  I thought the olives were a bit weird but these really turned out very flavorful.  Try this SIMPLE and DELICIOUS cracker for your New Years Eve or any eve!!

Thyme Olive Crackers
(adapted from Purple Foodie)

1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 Tablespoon fresh thyme,finely chopped
2 Tablespoons black olives, finely sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup half&half, more if needed (I did not need any more half&half.  You can also use heavy cream.)

Preheat oven 400 degrees

1.  Put flour, salt, cheese, thyme, olives, garlic and olive oil in bowl of food processor.  Pulse until flour and olive oil create little crumbs.  (If you do not have a food processor, whisk all the dry ingredients first, then add the oil and use a fork or pastry blender to mix until they look like coarse crumbs.)
2. Add about 1/4 cup half&half and let the machine run until dough is combined.  (If you do not have a food processor, pour the cream into the dough mixture and combine it into the dough with your hands.)
3.  Put parchment paper on a baking sheet.  Put the dough on the parchment paper and roll out until 1/4 inch, add flour as needed. (I put a little flour on the rolling pin)
4.  Score lightly with a sharp knife or pizza cutter.  Sprinkle with kosher salt or topping of your choice (pepper, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, minced garlic or onion).
