fennel crackers

a recipe by

As mentioned in the directions, roll the dough out as thin as possible. Really thin. After baking, you'll want to break the cracker into serving pieces. You should hear a little cracking sound when breaking. If you hear or feel a tearing sensation, place those pieces back on the cooking sheet and bake for another few minutes so they crisp up.
