Form a ball of dough and cut into four pieces.
Roll dough out very thin.
Cut with a cookie cutter Or use pastry wheel with crinkled edges.
Place on cookie sheet. Prick with a fork 4-5 times (or, if you want them to look like their storebought counterparts, you can poke the holes with a shish-kebab stick) and sprinkle with salt or other seasonings if you'd like varying flavors, BBQ seasoning, Chives, garlic salt, sundried tomato & garlic, etc.
Bake at 375 degrees 8 to 10 minutes or until golden (watch crackers carefully so they don't burn).
