One recipe looked like way too much work, but the other was a lot more simple so I chose that one (I'm not lazy it is just that it was 4 a.m. in the morning and I was ambitious but I wasn't THAT ambitious). The recipe was for sesame seed crackers and I didn't have as many sesame seeds as it called for but I felt I had enough to test out the recipe anyway. So here is the recipe:
1 C. water
3 T. oil
1 tsp. salt
2 1/2 C. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 C. sesame seeds (I had less than a 1/4 cup)
Mix the water, oil and salt together until the salt is dissolved. Add the flour, baking powder and seeds. Roll dough in a ball (it will be a bit sticky) and turn out on a floured surface. With a rolling pin, roll out as thin as you can get it.Prick with a fork all over. Cut with a pizza cutter (dip it in flour first)into squares or whatever shape you want.
Use a metal spatula dipped in flour to lift the squares off the board and onto a cookie sheet that you have sprinkled all over with salt. Sprinkle more salt on top of the pieces.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes (if they aren't cooked enough, they will not harden properly and become soft (you can bake them again for a few minutes if they do get soft later).
These weren't too bad but they tasted kind of plain to me. So the I made another batch and instead of sesame seeds I put in 2 tsp. onion powder. The onion powder ones were much, much better. I think garlic powder and any kind of herb would work good in them as well.
I didn't really want the plain ones to go to waste though so went looking through the cupboard and found several marked down packages of Hidden Valley Spicy Ranch dressing and in the frig was a container of sour cream so I made dip. The sesame seed crackers are quite wonderful with the dip.
Ok, time to go back to bed.
