whole wheat flour
all purpose flour
black sesame seeds
ground black pepper
more or less
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sesame seeds, salt, and pepper.
Add oil and about 10 T water to start (3/4 C, less 2 T) mix until combined. Add a little more water if necessary.
Turn dough out onto floured board and knead for 60-90 seconds. The dough should not be sticky.
Divide dough into 4 equal parts.
Working with one piece at a time, roll dough out until very thin.
Dock the dough all over with a fork.
Sprinkle with ¼ t of sea salt and press lightly into dough.
Cut dough into rectangles approximately 2” x 3”.
Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes, making sure the crackers don’t get too dark.
Transfer to a cooling rack.
You can certainly use traditional light sesame seeds. I just think the black ones add some visual interest to the crackers.
