Yield: 55 servings
|2 cups||Whole wheat or whole wheat|
|¼ cup||Plus 1 Tablespoon oil|
|1 cup||Apple sauce|
"Their true applesauce taste makes these crackers a welcome after-school snack. 350~F. 15 to 20 minutes Preheat the oven to 350~F.
Stir together the flour, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl or in the food processor. Add the oil and blend until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the apple sauce and mix well. Gather into a ball. If dough is too wet, knead in a little flour.
Divide the dough into 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll thin, 1/16 to ⅛ inch. With a sharp knife, cut into 2-inch squares. Arrange on a baking sheet. Prick each square 2 or 3 times with the tines of a fork.
Bake for 10 minutes. Turn and continue baking for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until crisp. Cool on a rack. Yield: 50-55.
VARIATION: If you want a sweeter cracker, sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar. Roll the rolling pin lightly over the tops before cutting to press in the sugar.
