Shiver me timbers! Here's an old pirate recipe for all you scurvy dogs. I don't recommend it.


  1. Mix together salt and flour.
  2. Add enough water to make a very stiff dough and flatten until dough is about half an inch thick.
  3. Cut dough into 4 inch circles (or use a cookie cutter to make life easier).
  4. Punch holes in the middle of each circle with a fork.
  5. Bake at 250 degrees for 2-3 hours.
  6. Try to eat.

Five stars for the real thing. I'm actually baking these to store in our earthquake survival kit - but the kids are enjoying munching on them.

LOL :) I wonder if this recipe is the same my great grandmother used to make us kids; she called 'em "Boards" and they were about that hard, but my sis and I enjoyed eating them. Iirc, we dunked them in milk.
