Hard Tack Extra Credit Recipe

  • 4 cups of flour
    2 cups of cold water
    2 tablespoons of cold butter or shortening/margarine
    4 teaspoons of salt
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix flour and water together in a bowl. Crumble in butter and add salt. Place the water in the bowl, and slowly add in flour while stirring constantly, until the mixture becomes too thick to stir, at which point enough flour has been added.
Knead dough and roll out until it is 1/2" (1cm.) thick.
Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 3"x3" (7cm. x 7cm.) squares.
Poke four rows of four holes in the cracker using a skewer stick.
Lay the crackers out on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven, flip crackers over, and bake for another 30 minutes.
Take crackers out when they are a light golden brown. Let the crackers cool for 30 minutes before eating.
