Butter Cracker Treats
Low Carbohydrate Recipe
This cracker is so rich and flaky with a delicious buttery taste, these crackers are wonderful for just about any purpose including as plain munchies.
8 tablespoons butter, soft
4 egg yolks
1/3 cup unbleached flour
1/3 cup Vital Wheat Gluten flour
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup whole almond meal
Once prepared, the dough will need to be refrigerated, so preheat oven to 325 degrees shortly before taking dough from fridge. Use two large, nonstick, heavy gauge metal cookie sheets.
Combine butter and two egg yolks in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat with a flat beater until thick and creamy. Add the remaining yolks and beat some more. Add all the other ingredients, stirring in at low speed or by hand. Refrigerate dough for about 30 minutes or longer, until the dough firms up and can be handled without sticking.
Form balls the size of grapes and put them on a cookie sheet. Allow room for some expansion. Flatten each cracker slightly with your fingertips.
Bake the crackers for 9 to 11 minutes, one cookie sheet at a time. The crackers should be barely golden with a slightly darker edge (avoid having the edges turn too dark). These crackers are great keepers (even at room temperature). They freeze well, too.
