1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine all ingredients in food processor, and pulse until crumbly.
- Add cold water, a tablespoon at a time, until dough comes together.
- Form into ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
- Place dough between two pieces of plastic wrap or parchment paper, and roll out to 1/8 inch thickness.
- Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheet, and, using pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into 1 inch squares.
- Sprinkle with kosher salt and bake for 25 minutes.
- Test for crispiness; crackers may take a few minutes more to finish crisping.
- Remove from oven when crisp and just starting to brown.
- Let cool and serve.
