Succotash snacks

Yield: 55 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Lima bean flour (available
At health food or specialty
Stores)
1 cup All-purpose flour
½ cup Corn meal
¼ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Sugar
⅓ cup Vegetable shortening
⅔ cup Water

"Lima beans and corn are a traditional combination which works very well in these crispy thin crackers. Served with a hearty bowl of soup, they are a lunch in themselves. 325~F. 25 to 30 minutes Preheat the oven to 325~F.

Stir together the flours, corn meal, salt, and sugar in a large bowl or in the food processor. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Blend in enough of the water to form a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball. Divide the dough into 2 portions for rolling.

Roll out to 1/16 to ⅛ inch. Cut into 2-inch shapes and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Prick each one 2 or 3 times with the tines of a fork.

Bake for 15 minutes. Turn over and continue baking another 10 to 15 minutes, or until medium brown. Cool on a rack. Yield: 50-55.

VARIATION: For a coarser texture and different taste, try substituting whole millet for the corn meal.
