Banana Crackers Recipe

"These flavorful crackers are an obvious choice for a breakfast snack. A wonderful fruit cobbler crust can be made by finely crumbling these crackers, moistening them with melted butter, and pressing them into a baking dish. 350F. 15 to 20 minutes Preheat the oven to 350F.

Step 1

Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl or in the food processor. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the banana and blend well.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, dissolve the honey in the warm water. Slowly add the sweetened water to the flour-banana mixture and blend to form a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball.

Step 3

Divide the dough into 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll thin, at most 1/8 inch. With a cookie cutter or a small glass, cut into 2- to 2-1/2-inch circles. Arrange the circles on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.

Step 4

Prick each cracker in 2 or 3 places with the tines of a fork. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning over once during baking. These crackers should be medium brown. Cool on a rack. Makes: 60-70.

VARIATION: Substitute 1-1/2 cups rice flour for an equal amount of the all-purpose flour.
