From a Kikkoman booklet. I haven't make them yet, but the picture on the booklet looks great, next to a clear Japanese soup.

Directions

  1. Combine flour, salt and pepper in medium bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Stir in cheese and sesame seed. Combine soy sauce and 3 teaspoons water; stir into dry ingredients.
  3. Add more water, a little at a time, mixing lightly until dough begins to stick together.
  4. Turn out dough and press together on lightly floured board or pastry cloth; roll out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut dough into 2 X 1 inch rectangles with pastry wheel or knife.
  5. Place on lightly greased baking sheets and bake at 400 degrees F. 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove crackers to rack to cool.

These are a real good cracker. I'm just not sure what I would serve them with. The toasted sesame seed flavor is very pronounced (which is good) but I'm not sure what type of cracker spread would compliment that flavor. I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and it worked very well. If I was serving these to guests, I would dig out my fluted pastry cutter and cut out the crackers with it.

First off, let me say that these have fantastic flavor! As my DH so eloquently put it--kinda like a grown-up Cheez-it :roll:. I love the way the sesame seeds add subtle flavor and crunch, and the soy sauce gives the saltiness one would want in a cracker. I made a half recipe and got 33 2-in round crackers. I also used 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 mozzarella, just what I had on hand. All of that said, I did have some trouble with texture. At the specified bake time mine were still pretty soft...I put them back in for a good 5 extra minutes to help them crisp up. I think they are fine now, DH says they are still too chewy. Perhaps I didn't roll them thin enough? At any rate, these are very good and I am glad to have a homemade snack for DS, who devoured two straightaway. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Tag.
