Homemade crackers "Quackers"

They are easy and delicious, and very fun!
They go stale quickly so best to serve the day you make them.

2 cups flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 tsp baking powder (not baking soda)
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup warm water
2 T. herbs of your choice (fresh rosemary is wonderful)
Mix it up (I used a food processor, but not necessary) and knead. Lightly flour a cloth or board and roll as thin as you can. Cut into crackers - you could use scissors or a knife or a cookie cutters, or a pizza cutter wheel. You might cut on a diagonal to make diamond shapes. You could brush with egg white and sprinkle with parmesan, coarse salt, sesame seeds, or poppy seeds. Or you could put some grated cheese in the dough. Fresh black pepper and lemon zest would be nice too. See, there are lots of things you can do. Preheat the oven to 425°. Put the crackers on a cookie pan and bake for about 5 minutes. They will puff up and look all gourmet. Be careful, they burn real quick. Cool on a rack.
