Directions:
Mix flour and salt together in a bowl. Add just enough water to make the mixture stick together. Roll the dough and shape in a rough rectangle. Cot the dough into 3 x 3 inch squares a 1/2 inch thick. Press a pattern of 4 holes (don't go through dough) on each side of the cracker. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in 375 oven for 30 minutes. Turn over and bake another 30 minutes. The cracker should be slightly brown on each side. They will dry and harden as they cool. Will need to soften with moisture before eating.

Personal Notes:
The soldiers would dunk Hard Tack in hot coffee, use it on top of stews. Grandpa Frank Novacek was a WWI veteran. He said it was so hard you could beat it with a shoe and not break it!
