Quick soda crackers

Yield: 80 Servings



Salt for the tops (opt.) These crackers cannot truly duplicate the lightness of traditional

soda crackers, but they take a fraction of the time to make, and they

are delicious in their own right. Plain, slightly biscuity crackers,

they go well with soups or stews. 350~ F 25 to 30 minutes Preheat the

oven to 350~ F. In the food processor or a large bowl, combine the

flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut the shortening into the flour

until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the water, little by

little, and blend to form a dough that will hold together in a

cohesive ball. Divide the dough into 3 equal portions for rolling. On

a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll out to a rectangle

approximately 1/4 inch thick and position so the long edge runs

horizontally in front of you. Fold the left third of the dough over

the center third. Likewise, fold the right third over the center. The

dough is now in 3 layers with the seam running vertically. Give the

dough a quarter turn so the seam now runs horizontally. Roll out

again to a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Fold and turn the dough

again as in the first step. You are now ready for the final rolling.

Roll the dough out somewhat thinner this time, about 1/8 inch thick.

If desired, sprinkle the top lightly and evenly with salt and roll

over it lightly with the rolling pin. With a sharp knife, cut into

2-inch squares and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Prick

each square 2 or 3 times with the tines of a fork. Bake for 25 to 30

minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on a rack. Yield: 80-85.

Yield: 2 Servings


4 1/2 c Bread flour

2 tb Wheat germ

1 tb Sugar

2 ts Salt

1/2 ts Ginger

2 pk Fast-acting dry yeast

1 c Warm water; (120-130*)

1 c Sour cream; room temp.

2 tb Vinegar

1 Egg white

1 tb Water

2 ts Poppy seeds

1. In large bowl, combine 1 1/2 c flour, and next five ingredients

(wheat germ, sugar, salt, ginger and yeast); blend well. Add water,

sour cream and vinegar to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until

mositened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Stir in an additional 2 to

2 1/2 c flour until dough pulls cleanly away from sides of bowl. 2.

On floured surface, knead in remaining 1/2 to 1 c flour until dough

is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl;

cover loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm

place until light and doubled in size, 25-35 minutes. 3. Grease large

cookie sheet. Punch down dough several times to remove all air

bubbles. Allow to rest on counter covered with inverted bowl for 15

minutes. Divide dough in half; roll each half to 14x8 rectangle. Starting with longest side roll up; pinch edges firmly to seal. Place seam side down on greased cookie sheet; taper ends to a point. With sharp knife make five 1/4" deep diagonal slashes on top of each loaf. Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size about 15 minutes. 4. Heat oven to 375*F. Bake 25 minutes. In small bowl beat egg white and water. Remove bread from oven; brush with egg white mixture. Sprinkle with poppy seed. Return to oven. Bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when lightly tapped. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; cool on wire racks. Makes 2 (17 oz.) loaves.
