Sesame Seed Sticks

From Serious Eats.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup (about 5 ounces) whole wheat flour
1/2 cup (about 2 ounces) toasted sesame seeds
1/4 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) cup fine cracked wheat (or ground oats)
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon garlic powder or to taste
1-1.5 teaspoons salt (to taste)
4 tablespoons sesame oil (plain, not toasted finishing oil)
1/4 – 1/2 c water (as needed to form loose dough)
1/4 c honey (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine flour, sesame seeds, cracked wheat, turmeric, beet powder, garlic powder, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk thoroughly to combine.
  2. In a small bowl, combine water and oil. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Combine thoroughly, kneading any remaining bits into the dough by hand.
  3. Divide dough in half and wrap each in plastic, flattening into inch-thick squares. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow dough to firm up before rolling. Once dough has chilled, heat oven to 350°F.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness and, using a knife or pizza wheel, cut into small rectangles (approximately 1/4-inch by 3/4-inch). Alternately, roll and cut dough to your desired shape. Uniformity is more important that size to assure even baking.
  5. Leave the pieces as they are or roll each one quickly between your palms to form thin rods. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake for ten minutes, then flip or roll the pieces around on the sheet so that both sides brown evenly. Continue baking 8-10 minutes more, until sticks are crisp and a light golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
