Yogurt thins

Yield: 85 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups All-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon Salt
¼ cup Oil
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.
