 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  Cup           butter or Margarine -- softened
    2      Cups          All-purpose flour
    1 1/2  Cups          Parmesan cheese -- finely Grated
    1                    Egg yolk
      1/2  Cup           Water
 "Parmesan Crackers are great with a cold beer or soda. Once you have started ea
 ting them, it is nearly impossible to stop.
  350~F. 15 to 20 minutes Preheat the oven to 350~F. In a large bowl or in the f
 ood processor, cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse
  meal. Add the cheese and egg yolk and mix well. Add enough of the water to for
 m a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball. The texture will be somew
 hat crumbly, but the dough will hold together when pressed. Divide the dough in
 to 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll eac
 h into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out individual crackers about 2 in
 ches across with a cookie cuttter or sharp knife and arrange them on an ungreas
 ed baking sheet. Prick each cracker 2 or 3 times with the tines of a fork. Bake
  for 10 minutes. Turn the crackers over and bake another 5 to 10 minutes, or un
 til medium brown. Cool the crackers on a rack. Yield: 40-50.
