So you added both to the hardtack or is this the panbread?

Powdered milk & powdered butter are for the crackers. Powdered milk & powdered egg are for panbread.

Add water to make a sticky dough. Into fry pan on medium/high heat that the oil is already heated.

Cook it like you would a pancake. Make sure the pan & oil is hot before putting the dough in the pan.

Post #20 is the cracker recipe I want to perfect. It has the flavor I like. My only drawback right now is being able to get the dough thin enough.

How about using a tortilla press to make your cracker, take a gallon size zip bag and cut two sides so you can open it and put your dough ball in it, flip the bag over it and press. it will make thin rounds that you could bake. the bag is so it wont stick to the tortilla press, after you press your dough ball sprinkle some sesame seeds on it and bake it for a diffrent taste.

I have no idea whether a tortilla press would work since I have never used one.

Tortilla press is now on my list of things to get as is a Lodge 10.5" round griddle.

Yes, a tortilla press can be used to make hardtack or crackers. I wasn't sure at first. Some of the tortilla presses are made that you don't have to press them the entire way down. So can do different thicknesses.

If you like tortillas, buritos, etc it would be well worth the investment of a tortilla press. A quality cast aluminum one is not very expensive.

The Lodge griddle makes it quick work to "fry" the tortillas be they corn or flour based.

My thought is you can you can make a bunch at a time. Bag some & put in the frig. On the same note, once pressed they can be layered with wax paper or cling wrap between them & frozen before cooking. But its so quick to mix & press them I'm not sure why you would want to freeze the dough. Doesn't taste the same after being frozen either.

when i want to get dough thinner i use less flour than the recipe calls for.. then make up for it by using extra flour on the roller, and surface.

My experience is that once you learn to make things like this you never want store bought again. Explains why I won't buy bread.

I do alot of tortilla wraps. For a quick something in my belly I'll even do lunch meat wraps with diced tomatoe, onion, & bell pepper. All three of which I keep containers in the frig.

If you want to do corn tortillas, do a search on amazon for masa harina.

I got a chance to help make some tortillas from scratch using a press & its definately the way to go. Thickness is consistent so time on the griddle is also. Just makes everything easier.
