1 1/4 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 T sugar or substitute
1/2 t sea salt- plus extra for sprinkling on
1/4 t paprika
4 T vegan margarine like Earth Balance
1/4 c + 2 T water
1/4 t vanilla
|Directions:||Preheat oven to 400F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a non-stick mat. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. With a pastry blender or two forks, cut in the margarine into the flour mixture until crumbly. Now mix together the water and vanilla and then pour into the flour and margarine mixture. Stir this mixture until it comes together- use your hands if needed. If it appears dry add a touch of water, but you don't want it sticky.
Split the dough in half. On a floured surface or on a non-stick mat, roll out one half of the dough very thin (1 1/6-inch). Using a pizza cutter, cut into whatever shape you desire. Using a spatula, place the crackers on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat as necessary. Sprinkle with more salt and sesame seeds if desired.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, watching closely. Half way through baking rotate the pan to ensure even baking. Be careful because they burn easily. Cool completely and store in an air-tight container.
