Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water, divided
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg white
  • TOPPING:
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a small bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients. Gradually add 2/3 cup water and oil, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times.
  2. Divide dough in half. Roll each ball directly on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray into a 12x9-in. rectangle. Pierce dough with a fork.
  3. Whisk together egg white and remaining water; brush over dough. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over tops.
  4. Score each pan of dough into 24 pieces. Bake until golden brown, 15-18 minutes. Immediately cut along the scored lines; cool in pans on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.
