Ranch Pickle Chip Crackers from ZestuousDriving home from work one day, I started craving fried pickles and that set my mind in motion. I wanted to create something with the same flavors, but less calories. That’s how the Ranch Pickle Chip Crackers were born.

Crackers are very easy to make from scratch. Just combine 1 cup flour, 3 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon olive oil, seasoning and 1/4 to 1/3 cup liquid.

For these crackers, my liquid of choice was freshly chopped dill pickle spears. I recommend chopping your own pickles instead of using relish because relish is full of added ingredients like corn syrup.

Instead of dunking the crackers in ranch, I put the ranch seasoning in the crackers. You could add a little dill, too, I just didn’t have any in the pantry.

Lastly, I wanted to mimic the crunch of the fried pickle, so I topped the crackers with a little bit of panko and Parmesan before baking.
