Hard Tack
16 pieces

3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 tsp salt
1 cup water

Preheat to 375 F.

Mix all ingredients and stir until it becomes to difficult, Knead
the dough in the bowl; add more flour until it is very dry. Roll
to 1/2 inch thickness and cut into 3" squares, poke through a sewer
to make several holes in each piece (for easy breaking). Bake 30
minutes on ungreased cookie sheets. Cool completely.

This stuff is going to be HARD, it was made to survive long treks
in the wilderness.

Reviewer: Anthony from Hartland, MI USA
Im in 8th grade and I am doing a report on the civil war and one of the things we could use for extra credit was to make hardtack. It was easy to make and did not really have a taste. I go to hartland Ore Creak middle school in michigan.
