Yield: 85 servings
|2 cups||All-purpose flour|
|½ cup||Plain, unsweetened yogurt|
"The flavor of these crispy snacks varies subtly with the type of yogurt used. A bit of sweet jam or honey complements these somewhat tangy crackers. They are also excellent with almost any dip.
325~ F 15 to 20 minutes
Preheat the oven to 325~ F.
In the food processor or in a large bowl, combine the flour and salt.
Add the oil and mix until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the yogurt and blend to form a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball. If necessary, add an addional Tablespoon of yogurt.
Divide the dough into 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll in a rectangular shape ⅛ inch thick.
Using a spatulay, rolling pin, or your hands, pick up the rolled dough and transfer it to a large baking sheet.
With a sharp knife, score the surface into 2-inch squares, taking care not to cut all the way through the dough. Prick each square in 2 or 3 places with the tines of a fork.
Baike for 15 to 20 minutes, or until light brown. Turn over once during baking and pull off any individual crackers at the edges that are already brown. Cool on a rack. Yield: 80-85.
VARIATIONS: A sweeter cracker will result by substituting sweetened yogurt for the plain yogurt. Lemon and berry flavors are good. If you use fruit-at-the-bottom yogurt, be sure to stir it first. Note that the color can be affected by the type of yogurt used.
Substituting ⅓ cup toasted wheat germ for the same amount of flour lends this cracker a nutty flavor.
