Batter will be sticky, Refrigerate dough in tightly closed plastic bag or bowl until ready to use. Do not allow dough to rise.

Preheat oven to 450~. Knead dough, adding enough flour to keep it from sticking when it is rolled out. Roll to ½-inch thickness and cut into desired shape. Bake on a greased pan 10 minutes.
