"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter, canola oil or olive oil
4 Tbsp water
1 tsp seasoning (eg. chili powder or dried herbs) (opt)

Directions:
Directions:
Mix together well (preferably in a food processor), 1 cup of the flour (can use white, whole wheat or rye), 1/2 teaspoon salt and oil or butter (use smaller amount for crisper crackers, or a larger amount for a richer flavor). Add 3 Tbsp water and mix well. Gradually add more water, mixing after each addition, until mixture forms a compact ball. If it seems too sticky to handle, add more flour. Sprinkle a work surface (or a baking sheet-sized piece of parchment paper) with some of the remaining flour then press and roll the dough to about 1/8th" thick. Try to get it fairly uniform. If the dough is too dry to roll out, return it to the food processor and add a little more water. If necessary, to prevent sticking, dust your hands and the rolling pin with a little more flour. Put the rolled out dough on a baking sheet dusted with a little flour (if you've used parchment paper, transfer dough and paper to baking sheet) and bake 10-15 minutes, until somewhat brown. Cool and break into pieces. If making several batches, mix another while the first one bakes. You can re-use the parchment paper several times.
