1/2 cup molasses
3 tablespoons butter or margarine -- cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons plain yogurt

Preparation / Directions:

Combine the molasses and butter in a small saucepan. Stir over low heat until the butter is melted. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. In the food processor or a large bowl, combine the flour, pepper, and salt and mix well. Stir the yogurt into the molasses mixture and then add to the flour mixture and blend to form a smooth dough. Remove the dough to a lightly-floured sheet of wax paper or lightly buttered aluminum foil and shape it into a log or cylinder approximately 1 1/2 inches thick and 12 inches long. Roll the log in the wax paper or foil and chill until firm, 45 minutes minimum. Preheat the oven to 350. When ready to bake, slice the log into 1/4 inch slices. Roll each slice with a floured rolling pin to form very thin ovals, about 1/16 inch thick. The ovals may stick either to your rolling pin or to your rolling surface. Gently peel them off. Place the ovals on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and prick each one 2 or 3 times with the tines of a fork. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until the crackers are medium brown. Those that are rolled slightly thinner than the others will brown first. Be ready to remove those from the sheet to cool while the others continue baking. Cool on racks. The crackers will crispen while cooling. HINTS: Serve with herbed cream cheese.
