    5       tb           Sesame seeds, toasted
    2       c            All-purpose flour
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/4   c            Oil
      1/2   c            Water
    1                    Egg, lightly beaten and
                         Diluted with 1 to 2 Tb milk
                         For brushing the tops
 
   "The flavor of sesame comes through very nicely in
   these crispy crackers. Try them wih your favorite
   chutney or with cream cheese and jam. If you are
   feeling extravagant, spread them with sour cream and
   caviar. 325~ F 20 to 25 minutes Preheat the oven to
   325~ F. In a food mill or blender, grind the sesame
   seeds until coarsely broken. A food processor will not
   effectively grind this small quantity. If preferred,
   you can leave the seeds whole. In a large bowl or in
   the food processor, stir together the flour, seeds,
   and salt. Add the oil and blend until the mixture
   resembles coarse meal. Blend in enough of the water, a
   little at a time, to form a dough that will hold
   together in a cohesive ball. If necessary, add up to 1
   additional Tablespoon of water. Divide the dough into
   2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or
   pastry cloth, roll to 1/16 inch thick. With a sharp
   knife or cookie cutter, cut in desired shapes
   approximately 2 inches across. Arrange on an ungreased
   baking sheet. Prick each cracker in 2 or 3 places with
   the tines of a fork. Brush the tops lightly with the
   egg mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the
   crackers are light to medium brown. Cool on a rack.
   Yield: 85-90.
