Scooters Are Emasculating

Just a quick post here...
Getting ready for our big trip up to the land near Ely, MN!! So excited! Must pack!
I made crackers!! Woot! And healthy, too!

Flax Meal Crackers inspired by Olive Oil Crackers Recipe

1 C flax meal
2 1/4 - 2 1/2 C AP flour
1 t salt
1 C warm water
1/3 C olive oil

to top;
2 t salt
3 t garlic granules

Mix in mixer. Switch to dough hook and mix on med-high for 5m. Dough should be neither too dry or too sticky to work with (how's THAT for vague!). Add more flour if needed. I added flour until the dough started coming away from the bowl.

Shape into a ball and cut into 12. Shape these into small balls and set aside under a wet towel for 30 - 60m.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees with pizza stone in it.

Use a 13" long piece of parchment paper, folded in half, to roll out dough (place dough between the two layers of parchment you have created by folding). Start by shaping the dough by hand into an oval, then place between layers of parchment and press by hand flatter. Finally, begin rolling out with a rolling pin, flipping over and lifting the parchment paper and straightening it as needed. Roll out to roughly 6 x 10".

Remove to a cornmeal dusted baking sheet, prick holes into it all over with a fork and dust with garlic and salt mixture (or whatever floats your boat).

Slide onto pizza stone and bake 5m or until edges are turning brown.

Makes 12 biiiiig crackers. Yum!

Gotta go pack! Have a great 4th!
