Pepper Crackers

Courses: Starters and appetizers
Serves: 2 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 1/2 cups 93g / 3.3ozFlour
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlPlus 1 tsp. Or more to taste
  Freshly ground black pepper
  *coarsely ground
2 tablespoons 30mlVegetable oil
7 tablespoons 105mlTo 9 T. Cold tap water

Recipe Instructions

Makes 2 approximately 12x8-inch sheets

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, salt and pepper.

3. Add the oil and stir until mixture resembles fine meal.

4. With a fork, stir in the cold water, using just enough to make the dough gather into a ball.

5. Divide the dough in half and, on a well-floured board, roll out each half as thinly as possible into a rough rectangle that fits on a baking sheet.

6. Place dough on baking sheet and if you want neat-looking crackers, score it into squares or diamonds.

7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes. Dough should be a pale brown and snap, not bend.

8. Break into crackers or irregular pieces. Can be stored in a tin.

Variations: Instead of black pepper, season with hot red pepper flakes or any other spice that seems appropriate to the crackers' eventual use. Or, after the dough has been transferred to a baking sheet, sprinkle with coarse salt and press lightly into the top.
