Sesame Thins (crackers)

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by WaterMelon

Makes an excellent accompaniment to hummus or other spread. I just discovered that I love dipping them into garlic/onion flavored cream cheese. I also love them with soups. Sesame oil gives these crackers a strong, nutty taste. If you want a milder cracker, substitute shortening for some of the oil. Yield 6 dozen crackers. (From King Arthur Flour's Baking Companion)

Sorry but we didn't like these. They were not light like crackers, and the sesame was overpowering. I probably won't make these again.
