Sesame Crackers and Winner of The Just Bento Cookbook

Here's a recipe for Sesame Crackers that's a family favorite.  It's based on an unleavened bread recipe but I added sugar and sesame seeds to it and replaced the flour with rice flour to make it gluten-free.  Really crunchy and yummy this time of the year.
Sesame Crackers
   1 c rice flour
   3 tbsp softened butter 
   1 tsp kosher salt
   1/2 c white sesame seeds
   1/2 c sugar
   1/3 c water
Preheat oven to 350 C.  Mix all dry ingredients together then add the water slowly.  The mixture will be a little watery but pour this on Silpat covered cookie sheet. Bake till edges are light brown and middle part is slightly solidified.  Score into squares with a pizza cutter. Turn off heat till crackers are golden-brown.

And the winner of The Just Bento Cookbook is Ivy.  Congratulations Ivy ...have fun...you can now make your own bento! Please email your home address to momgateway@gmail.com. I truly thank everyone who commented on the two posts regarding Hanami Bento and Shiso sushi so I am doing another giveaway this time for a copy of Best Bites recipes from OSU Seretean Wellness Center Kitchen.  It will be featured in my next post.
