  1. Preheat oven to 425°F Grease two cookie sheets, and set aside.
  2. Combine the flour and white pepper in a food processor.
  3. Add shortening and pulse until coarse crumbs. Add sauerkraut and pulse until it comes together in a ball.
  4. Transfer to a floured surface.

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.
