Soda Crackers (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
2 Cups Flour (Replace with gluten-free flour blend)
1 Teaspoon Salt
¼ Cup Butter
½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
½ Cup Sour Milk
1 Large Egg
Sift the flour, salt and baking soda into a bowl. Cut in the butter until very fine. Add the milk and egg and mix to make stiff dough. Kneed thoroughly, and then roll the dough very thin. Cut into squares or rounds and place on lightly buttered cookie sheets. Prick the crackers with a fork and then bake in a 400F degree oven for 10 minutes or until very lightly browned. If desired, crackers may be sprinkled with coarse salt.
