Hot Potato Crackers
1 1/3 c All purpose flour
2/3 c Potato flour
2 tb Dried chives
1/2 ts Salt
2 ts Black pepper, ground
1/2 c Shortening
1/2 c Water
Salt for the tops, optional
Paprika for the top, option
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, combine the flours, chives, salt & pepper. Cut in the
shortening until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Slowly blend in
the water. Divide the dough into 2 equal balls. On a floured surface, roll
out into a thin rectangle 1/16" to 1/8" thick. Sprinkle with salt & paprika
& roll over with rolling pin.
Cut into 2" shapes with a sharp knife. Prick each cracker with a fork.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Some crackers will brown
more quickly than others, so watch carefully for the last 5 minutes or so.
Cool on a wire rack.
Use as an alternative snack to potato chips.
