 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2   c            All-purpose flour
    1 1/2   c            Rolled oats (oatmeal)
      1/2   ts           Salt
    1       tb           Sugar
    6       tb           (3/4 stick) butter or
                         -Margarine, melted and
      1/2   c            Milk
   Preheat the oven to 325~ F. "Crunchy and nutty, these crackers make a
   nutritious snack. Put your feet up after a hard day’s work and enjoy a few
   with a glass of fresh lemonade.
   325~ F      20 to 25 minutes
   Stir together the flour, oats, salt, and sugar in a large bowl or in the
   food processor. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
   Blend in enough of the milk to form a dough that will hold together in a
   cohesive ball.
   Divid the dough into 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or
   pastry cloth, roll as thin as possible, to about 1/16 inch thick. Using a
   spatula, rolling pin, or your hands, transfer the rolled dough gently onto
   a large baking sheet.
   With a sharp knife, score the dough into 2-inch squares without cutting all
   the way throug the dough. Prick each square 2 or 3 times with the tines of
   a fork.
   Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turning over after 15 minutes, until crisp. Cool
   on a rack. Break into individual crackers when cool. Yield: 50-60.
