3/4 cup very strong brewed spice tea -- warm
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons butter or margarine -- softened

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 Dissolve the honey in the warm tea. In a large bowl or in the food processor, mix the flour and baking soda together. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Slowly mix in about 1/2 cup of the tea-honey mixture, just enough to form a dough that will hold together in a cohesive ball. Reserve the remaining tea to glaze the tops of the crackers. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth, roll out to 1/8 inch thick. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 2 inch shapes. Place the crackers on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Prick each one all the way through in 2 or 3 places with the tines of a fork. Bake for 10 minutes, turn and brush the tops with the remaining tea-honey liquid. Continue baking for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a rack. VARIATION: Using a smoky tea such as Darjeeling also produces an interesting cracker.
