Plain cookies, good for tea, with cream cheese and jam, or cheese and fruit.

Directions

  1. Cut butter into flour until fully incorporated.
  2. Mix in remaining ingredients, carefully adding hot water until dough reaches a pastry consistency.
  3. Roll out dough on a floured board until very thin--1/8 inch (dough may be chilled first).
  4. Cut into rounds the size you want, transfer to cookie sheets (1" apart) and prick (like a cracker) [do not grease cookie sheets].
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F until golden brown, 10-15 minutes.
  6. Cool on rack, store in air-tight container.
