Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
2 4/5 Ounce(oz)  rice flour
1/2 Cup(c)  cake flour
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  baking powder
3/4 Teaspoon(t)  salt
1 1/2 Tablespoon(T)  white sesame seeds
1 1/2 Tablespoon(T)  black sesame seeds
2 Tablespoon(T)  additional cake flour, for dusting


In a medium bowl, combine the flours and baking powder.  Add salted lukewarm water to the flour mixture little by little, stirring, until the mixture has a dough like consistency.  Divide the dough into two portions.  Flatten one portion, sprinkle the white sesame seeds on top, and knead them in.  Incorporate the black sesame seeds into the other piece of dough in the same way.  Shape each piece of dough into a ball.  Place the dough balls in a plastic bag, and refrigerate them 1 hour.  Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.  On a lightly floured counter, roll each ball into a log about 2/3 inches in diameter.  Cut each log into quarters, then each quarter into quarters, to make 32 dough disks.  Dredge the cut sides lightly in flour to prevent them from drying out.  With a rolling pin, roll each disk into a circle 2 1/2 inches in diameter.  Arrange the thin disks on a baking sheet, and transfer to the heated oven.  Bake the crackers until crisp and light golden, about 15 to 20 minutes, turning the crackers over once halfway through the baking.  Transfer the crackers to a rack to cool, then store them in a jar with a tight fitting lid.  Serve the crackers with edamame soybean dip, soybean hummus, miso and cashew spread, or your favorite dip.

Additional notes

Variation:  Poppy seeds are a good substitute for sesame seeds.
