Bailey's hot-water soda wafers with chives

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Water
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ cup Unsalted butter
½ teaspoon Baking soda
2 cups All-purpose flour
3 tablespoons Chopped fresh chives; or more

Preheat oven to 425F degrees.

Place water, salt, and butter in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.

Meanwhile, toss baking soda and flour together. When water is boiling, add flour all at once, stimng constantly with a wooden spoon. Continue to stir over low heat for another minute, until the mixture is well combined and has formed a ball.

Pull off walnut-size pieces of dough and quickly roll each into a ball.

Flatten slightly and sprinkle with chives. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and press with heel of the hand until very thin. Prick with a fork in several places. Continue until all dough is used.

Bake for 15 minutes or until browned and crisp. Allow to cool slightly on a rack. Makes approximately 48 wafers SOURCE: Lee Bailey's Soup Meals (1989:isbn0517573040) Notes: Lee's Intro: These wafers tend to toughen up if allowed to sit around too long so they are best eaten shortly after baking.
