Homemade Lavash Crackers
1 Large Egg
5 Cups All-Pupose Flour
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
1¼ Cup Warm Water
2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
Lavash Crackers Instructions:
- Mix all ingredients until dough forms. Knead for 3 minutes. Dough should be dry but not crumbly. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes.
- Roll out dough as thin as possible, and cut to desired shape. Using a pasta sheeter works best but it can be done with a rolling pin.
- Using a metal baking sheet turned upside down, cover with a light coating of olive oil and stretch dough over the pan.
- Using a fork, mix together 2 eggs with a few drops of water to make an egg wash. Liberally coat cracker dough with a pastry brush and sprinkle with your favorite seasoning.
- Bake at 350° for 4 minutes, rotate and bake for another 4 minutes or until golden brown.
