- 4 cups flour
- 1 cup butter (or margarine)
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Work the butter into the flour with a pastry cutter or fork.
Next, stir the vinegar, baking soda, and salt into the milk, and add this to the butter-flour mixture.
Form the dough into a ball.
Roll out to a thickness of about 1/5 inch...very thin.
Lightly score the dough in the size of the cracker you desire.
(an easy way to do this is roll out the dough directly onto a flat baking sheet. Next, placing a ruler on the dough perforate the dough along the side of the ruler with a fork. Make squares, or diamonds. If you use cookie cutters for special occasions you wil have alot of waste unless you gather up the fragments and re-roll and re-cut them.
Bake the crackers at 375* for about 20 minutes or until crisp.
The crackers should not get too brown, just a sprinkling of brown on top.
