  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball (dough will be dry).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times. Divide dough into 10 pieces. Roll each piece into a 6-in. circle. Place on greased baking sheets. Prick entire surface of each circle with a fork.
  3. Bake at 325° for 12-15 minutes or until firm. Turn; bake 6-7 minutes longer or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 10 crisps.
