    2. 2
      Combine the flour and white pepper in a food processor.

      Transfer to a floured surface.

      Now, you can either pinch off tablespoon size bits and flatten with the bottom of a glass, or, flatten just so much and transfer to a greased cookie sheet, and flatten more there. When it is in the cookie sheet, you can pre-mark with a cookie cutter (shortbread cutter)the shapes you desire.
    6. 6

      Hummmmm, didn't know what to expect with "SAUERKRAUT CRACKERS", for heaven's sake! But I really enjoyed these with some lentil soup I made. I guess loving sauerkraut and sauerkraut juice didn't hurt! My nephew didn't like these which only left more for me. I did keep in mind *Tink*'s comment about draining the kraut too much. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Evelyn. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!

      I had just a little trouble keeping the dough together. I think I may have drained the sauerkraut a little too much. But I manaaged to roll the dough out onto my cookie sheets & then cut them into squares with a pizza cutter. The flavor combination of pepper & sauerkraut was very interesting. I served them with homemade chicken soup. Thank you for sharing L Evelyn. Made, enjoyed & reviewed for Pick-A-Chef Spring 2008.
