6. Shape the crackers

7. Bake

Flatten each cracker with the bottom of a glass keeping a bowl of water aside so you can clean the flattening tool so the mix won’t stick to the bottom. Bake (or grill) until golden, for about 8 minutes at 400°F. Sprinkle extra sesame seeds on top and a pinch of marine salt. Eat with hummus, guacamole or broken up like croutons on top of a salad.
