Whole Grain Crackers

2 1/2 cups freshly ground spelt, kamut, whole wheat, or rye flour, or a mixture
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
8 tbsp butter, melted
unbleached white flour

Mix flour with yogurt and leave in a warm place for 12 to 24 hours. Place soaked flour, salt, baking powder, and 4 tbsp butter in food processor and process until well blended. Add sesame seeds and pulse once or twice. Roll out to about 1/8 inch on a pastry cloth, using unbleached white flour to prevent sticking. Cut into squares with a knife or rounds with a glass. Place on a buttered cookie sheet, brush with remaining melted butter and bake in a 150-degree oven for until completely dry and crisp. Store in an airtight container in the fridge until the next time you're ovulating or D's out of town.

Ha! Jeni, you're funny!

These look good, though. I guess the yogurt leavens the flour a bit? Nifty.

Is this the one for me? I think I could swing 'em, with silken tofu (soured) and marg....

Have you made them yet? I made graham crackers once and they were la barf, unfortunately.

Nah, I haven't made them. The whole 12-24 hour prep time keeps scaring me away.
