Soda CrackersPrint Version
0 Carb Choices* Great for Soups, Salads and Stews
This cracker is as close as we can come to a "soda" cracker without adding salt or too much oil. You can add flavors if you like such as onion flakes,
poppy seeds, caraway seeds, pepper, chili peppers, etc.

4 cups white unbleached flour (10 mg)
2 tablespoons Ener-G Baking Soda* (0 mg)
2 teaspoons Featherweight Baking Powder (9 mg)
1 teaspoon vanilla (.378 mg)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds (6.4 mg)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (trace)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (.15 mg)
1/3 cups nonfat milk**** (169.8 mg)
1 1/2 cups filtered water (trace)
Optional: 1 teaspoon black pepper (.924 mg)
Preheat oven to 400° F.
In a medium size mixing bowl, stir together the flour, Ener-G Baking Soda, Featherweight Baking Powder, powdered vanilla, and
Cut olive oil, milk and water into the flour with a knife or fork. Add the vinegar
At the end, you'll have to work with your hands in the batter. Don't overwork the batter.
Form a ball of dough with your hands and cut or break into four pieces.
On a floured breadboard, roll the first ball out very very thinly. You want as thin as you can get.
Push down hard on your rolling pin. Cut with 2" round or square cookie cutter and place on lightly greased cookie sheet.
Prick with a fork 4-5 times, through the top down into the metal of the sheet. Don't forget this step.
It's important. You should be able to get 18 to 24 crackers on a baking sheet.
Bake on middle rack at 400° F for about 6 - 9 minutes. (The thinness of the cracker will determine the time. The tops will start to brown.) Turn and bake for another 3 to 5 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don't burn on you. Some ovens are hotter than others.
Cool on rack. Serve with soups, salads or at parties just as you would regular salty crackers.
*If you want a "fatter" cookie, replace the Ener-G with Featherweight in equal amount.
