Here is the back story:
I must be just plain dumb. I had an emergency box of crackers for sick tummies. I found the empty box, no crackers... Nobody ate them though. I just must have bought an empty box a the grocery store... I digress...
So, with a sick kid, sick hubby, and my own tummy in protest (precluding a trip to the store) I decided to look up a recipe online for old fashioned soda crackers.
I think I can call this a happy accident. These crackers were super simple, and really helped our sick tummies.
Mind you, I used my convection oven at 395 F, but 425 F in a regular oven works too.
2-Mix in a big bowl- 4 1/2 c AP (unbleached) flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp baking soda.
4- cut in 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
5- Add 11/2 c water, mix
6-on a lightly floured surface, kneed until a smooth ball
7- roll out to thin sheets. Cut into squares with a pizza cutter.
8- brush tops with a egg wash (1 tbs water mixed with one egg) and sprinkle with salt as desired
8- bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 20 or so min. I like to use parchment paper.
