These are pretty easy to make and soo good, they taste just like store bought, but with out all the added extra stuff. Plus one more thing you don’t have to worry about storing. You can use a mixer or food processor to make these.After you make these you will never want store bought again.
Start by putting
2 cups Flour
1 Tablespoon yeast
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons shortening or lard
in a mixing bowl (or food processor)
Mix until the shortening is well blended in. Add 2/3 cup hot water (120 to 130 degrees) add water a little at a time untilyou have a workable dough. Knead about 4 minutes with the dough hook.
Put dough on a lightly floured surface form into a ball
place in a lightly greased bowl cover and let rest for about 30 minutes
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times then make a ball and cut into quarters
Roll dough out, I use a pasta maker to roll mine out but I have used a rolling pin.
It need to be pretty thin 1/16 of an inch.
I put the rolled out dough on the counter and sprinkle salt on them pat the salt down so it stays on the dough.
I put the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet before I cut it makes it easier. A pizza cutter is great to cut them with. After you cut take a fork and prick the crackers. You can make them what ever size you want.
Put in a 375 oven for about 7 minutes until golden brown.
This makes a lot of crackers. Just put into a ziplock bag to keep fresh.
