Directions:
Soak yeast in warm water. Add dry ingredients a little at a time until you get a good consistency dough. Let dough stand until it rises. Beat it down and let it rise again. After the second time the dough rises break dough into egg size pieces. Roll dough to about 6 inch diameter. Do not let dough rise after you roll it out. Have your oven and cookie sheet preheated to 400 oven before you roll out the dough. Put the rounds of dough on a hot pan and bake for 5 minutes.
