Saloon Pilot Crackers

Saloon pilot crackers - We all grew up eating these crackers from diamond bakery or Hilo Macaroni Factory.  For those unable to get these crackers in the store, here is a simple recipe for you to try.  Read more about the origin of saloon pilot or hard tack crackers in Honolulu Magazine.

US Metric
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter flavored shortening
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Cooking Process:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix all ingredients together.  Turn onto a floured board and knead for five minutes. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.  Knead again for a couple minutes and allow dough to rest for another 10 minutes.  Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Use the rim of a cup or container to cut out 3"- 4" circles.  Use a fork or skewer to prick the center of the circle a few times. Arrange on 2 baking sheets and bake for 20 minutes rotating baking sheets every 5 minutes.  Turn oven off and leave crackers in oven until completely cool.  This is what gives the crackers the "hard tack" texture.

Makes 9-12 crackers (depending on size)

Note: My crackers came out tasting pretty close to the saloon pilot crackers that I grew up with.  Maybe i rolled them a little on the thin side, but they were pretty good.
