Directions

MAKE DOUGH:
Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. Add butter and yogurt. Cut in butter with pastry blender. When the mixture starts to look like dough, use (clean!) hands to squish and knead dough until it is consistent. make sure to get all of the dry ingredients inside the bowl. (Alternatively - pulse ingredients together with a food mixing machine until it forms a dough.)

With a knife, cut the dough into quarters (4 equal pieces). Wrap each dough quarter in plastic wrap and chill in freezer for 10 minutes. While the dough is chilling, prepare a clean place to roll out dough. A good surface to use is a wooden cutting board or baking sheet. Sprinkle some all-purpose flour on the surface and spread it around.

MAKE GLAZE:
Beat together eggs, sugar, and soy sauce in a small bowl with a fork until the sugar is dissolved. Set it and a glazing brush aside.

Divide one dough quarter into 8 equal portions. With a floured rolling pin (or floured hands) roll each portion into the rectangular strips on the floured surface. Each strip should be about 2.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches long. Gently fold each strip like you would fold a letter. Place the folded crackers onto greased baking sheets. Go ahead and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Use the glazing brush to glaze each folded cracker with the soy sauce mixture. Try not to use so much glaze that it runs onto the baking sheet. You probably won't use all of the glaze. Heavily sprinkle each cracker with sesame seeds.

Place the baking sheets on the upper and lower thirds of the preheated oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until glaze is golden brown and crackers are crisp. Transfer to racks to cool. Make more crackers is some manner. Store uneaten crackers in a Ziploc bag.

Note: I usually only cook 2 dough quarters at a time. Just freeze whatever dough you don't use and make a new batch of glaze the next time you want to bake more.

Makes 32 crackers.
