Communion Bread.

This bread is a religious experience. [Religious Joke #1]

So as a kid I looooved the communion bread at my families SDA church. The first time I had it I snatched a piece from the plate as it passed. This was major because you are not supposed to take communion until you are baptized and at a 5 year old, I could not be baptized.
But at that moment I understood why they called it the body of Christ. It was so good it must be holy! [Religious Joke #2]

Once I was older and more apt to understand the meaning of the ceremony, I still could not get over how tasty the bread was. Whoever baked it would sometimes have extra that had not been blessed and I would snack on it at potluck after church.

Well a few weeks ago I found the recipe! It is as simple as I thought it would be.
The very very simple recipe is found here

But its basically this.
2cup whole wheat flour
1/2 water
1/2 olive [or other] oil
salt to taste. [I probably put about 2 tsp cause I like it salty]

You mix salt and flour then whisk the water and oil and stir into dry ingredients.
Its important to whisk the water and oil or else you will get doughy hard spots of only water and flour.

Then roll the dough out on a cookie sheet and cut into squares with a pizza cutter.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 -15 minutes. After 10 minutes check the center pieces every 2 minutes or so. You want them to be pretty firm, and they will crisp up a bit after as well.

Mmmmmm so good.

Is it sacrilege that I had them with a glass of wine? [Religious Joke#3]

haha. this cracked me out. Snacking on communion bread. I didn't take communion till I was in middle/high school and was at a Lutheran church. They used real red wine and these little wafery things that were not good. Speaking of religious jokes. As a high schooler I remember sitting in the pews after communion picking that wafer out of my teeth saying to my best friend "there's a little Jesus stuck in my molers." I'm pretty sure that's about the most sacrilegious thing ever, except maybe the fact that I still giggle when I tell the story. Bad me, bad!
