Cheezy Quackers

This recipe came from 500 Vegan Recipes, by Celine Steen and Joni Marie Newman. The only thing I changed was I cut back on the salt a little. The recipe also said to use "prepared cookie sheets", whatever that means. I just put them straight onto the foil.

Nutritional yeast is interesting and it seems you either love it or hate it. It has an odd smell and while you are making this dough, and you may be turned off by it because it stinks. I won't lie. It smells like feet. But when it bakes it starts to smell wonderful towards the ends and gives the crackers a slightly cheesy flavor. If you really hate nutritional yeast and don't mind dairy, some Parmesan cheese might be great in this. I don't know for sure though!

This a great one to let the kids help with!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
4 tbsp margarine
1/2 cup water or non-dairy milk

Combine the flour, nutritional yeast, pepper, and salt. Cut the margarine on top and combine with a fork until it looks like coarse meal. Add water 1 tbsp at a time until the dough forms. Roll dough out to 1/4" thick or less. Preheat oven to 350*. Cut out shapes using a very small cookie cutter. Place crackers on a cookie sheet. Bake 15-18 minutes.
