Millet crackers

Yield: 85 servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Whole millet
½ cup Millet flour
2 cups All-purpose flour
½ teaspoon Salt
⅓ cup Vegetable shortening
⅝ cup (1/2 cup plus 2 Tb) milk
1 tablespoon Honey

"Millet is an excellent grain which is too often overlooked. It adds both texture and a sweet flavor. These simple crackers are splendid with a fresh fruit salad. 350~F. 20 to 25 minutes Preheat the oven to 350~F.

Stir together the millet, flours, and salt in a large bowl or in the food processor. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Warm the milk in a small saucepan. Dissolve the honey in the warm milk. Add this sweetened milk to the flour mixture and blend to form a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball. If necessary, add a little more milk.

Divide the dough into 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll thin, maximum ⅛ inch. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 2-inch squares and place them on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Prick each square 2 or 3 times with the tines of a fork. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn over and continue baking another 10 to 15 minutes, or until medium brown. Cool on a rack. Yield: 75-85.
