Also Called: Matzoh, Unleavened Bread

DIRECTIONS

Mix ingredients, then divide into three equal balls of dough. Shape each into a very thin circle 6 to 8 inches in diameter.

Place on a greased cookie sheet and prick the dough with a fork. Bake in a preheated oven at 500° F. for 5-6 minutes or until brown.
