Homemade Water Biscuits, Cheap and wonderfully moreish
These are a tasty treat for the lunchbox, and easily made with very little expense. The only fiddle is rolling out and cutting, but that is easily done quickly.
In a bowl put 1.5c of flour, rub in 50-100g butter (depending on how "short" you like them), and add enough cold water to make a soft dough.
Roll our super thin, wafer thin.
Brush with a little oil and shake on some salt or other flavours, then cut into shapes and bake in a hot oven(180-200C) for about 10mins till browned slightly.
Flavours: salt, chickenstock, beefstock, dried herbs, dried onion.
They stay crispy in an airtight container, but I really love them hot from the oven.
Great spread with homemade pate.
