Home | Recipes | B
Biscuits Bread Quick'n'eas


  • 1 1/2 c Water
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Unsalted butter
  • 1/2 ts Baking soda
  • 2 c All-purpose flour
  • 3 tb Chopped fresh chives; or more


Preheat oven to 425F degrees.
Place water, salt, and butter in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, toss baking soda and flour together. When water is boiling, add flour all at once, stimng constantly with a wooden spoon. Continue to stir over low heat for another minute, until the mixture is well combined and has formed a ball.
Pull off walnut-size pieces of dough and quickly roll each into a ball. Flatten slightly and sprinkle with chives. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and press with heel of the hand until very thin. Prick with a fork in several places. Continue until all dough is used.
Bake for 15 minutes or until browned and crisp. Allow to cool slightly on a rack. Makes approximately 48 wafers

Notes: Lee's Intro: These wafers tend to toughen up if allowed to sit around too long so they are best eaten shortly after baking.
