Why I Love This Recipe

We found this recipe a few years ago when my brothers and I were pretending to be Civil War soldiers. It is a simple and easy recipe for hardtack. It works well in coffee, soups, as biscuits, or a hiking snack. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The pure substances are water (H2O) and salt (NaCI). The homogeneous mixtures are the flour and when everything is mixed together. The heterogeneous mixtures are the overall product outcome, and the product with flour on it. The dough being formed into squares and poking holes into the dough are both physical changes. The browning of the dough and the rising are chemical changes.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 Cups of Flour
1 Cup of Water
3 Teaspoons of Salt


Mix the flour, water and salt together, and make sure the mixture is fairly dry.

Then roll it out to about 1/2 inch thickness, and shape it into a rectangle. Cut it into 3×3 inch squares, and poke holes in both sides.

Place on an un-greased cookie or baking sheet, and cook for 30 minutes per side at 375 (or 350 if you have a convection oven).
