New Farm Crackers

These were great, though I only had a couple fresh out of the oven. I went away for a half hour and came back and they had disappeared! I hear these are LOVED by kids.

New Farm Cookboook's Cheezy Crackers:
1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
2 Tablespoons oil
2/3 cup soymilk or water

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the oil and milk. Knead into a smooth ball. Preheat oven to 425 F and oil two cookie sheets. Divide dough in half and roll out each layer on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle top with caraway seeds or sesame seeds, if desired and toll in lightly. Cut into squares. Bake 7 to 10 minutes until golden brown.


Things I learned about these with a tip from Michelle.
When you roll them out, roll very thin, brush with a light oil or melted earth balance, fold the dough over and roll over again lightly. This is create flaky layers like gold fish crackers.
These are fun to cut out with cookie cutters. and have dino crackers!
I used half chickpea flour to mix up the flavor a bit.

I made these today and, wow! They're great, thanks for posting the recipe. I wish I'd rolled mine a little thinner because some of them stayed sort of soft, but they taste fantastic.
