Lavash

This is another recipe from the Emergency Preparedness Fair. It is similar to making bread, but the dough is rolled out really thin and cooked into a cracker. So, for a little motivation, anyone who tries to make this recipe by June 20, 2010 will be entered to win an emergency preparedness video (a $15.00 value). The video was donated by Emergency Essentials. Either leave a comment or tell me at church that you have made the Lavash.

Lavash
1 ½ cups flour
½ tsp. yeast
½ tsp. salt
1 T. honey
1 T. vegetable oil
½ cup warm water

Combine warm water and yeast. Let sit 5 minutes. Combine flour and salt. Mix in vegetable oil and honey. Stir in yeast mixture. Knead dough for five minutes.

Put in greased bowl. Cover with towel. Put into warm place 1-2 hours, or until double in size.
On a lightly floured surface, roll as thin as possible.

Sprinkle dough with salt. Cut dough into desired shapes. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly.

Hint: Once the dough is on the baking sheet, sprinkle with salt or any combination of seeds or seasonings such as sesame seeds, paprika, and cumin seeds. The thinner the dough, the less bubbles there will be. Press down dough during baking, if needed to push down bubbles.
