Communion wafer crackers

I bought these great (overpriced)rosemary crackers from Whole Foods. 34 degree is the brand. They seem just like those super thin communion wafers but with some nice flavor. Super thin and crispy. Would love to make these for myself. Can you help???

  1. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    In your food processor, blend 5 ounces of AP flour and 2 tsp. ground rosemary with 1/2 tsp salt and 2 Tbsp oil. Add warm (room temp.) water 1 Tbsp at a time until the ingredients come together and form a ball. It'll take between 3 - 4 Tbsp. (depending on humidity). In drier climates it may take a little bit more. The dough should be tacky but not sticky.
    Sprinkle a work surface with flour or cover it with parchment paper, then cut the dough ball ink half. Press the dough ball flat on the counter and use your a rolling pin to roll it out to approx. an 1/8 inch thickness.
    Bake 10 – 15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes so they bake evenly.
    Cool on a cooling rack. You can cut them before baking if you like but it's also OK to just break them apart when they're cooled.
    With a little practice you'll get the feel for the texture of the dough that works best for you. You'll also find that, on days when humidity is high, you won't need as much water.
    To make things easier, you can cut the parchment to fit your baking sheet, roll the dough out on the parchment and lift the parchment to load the rolled dough onto the baking sheet.
