Unleavened Bread

Making Unleavened Bread for Maundy Thursday

1 cup of all-purpose flour
scant 1/3 cup of olive oil*
scant 1/3 cup of water
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and stir with a spoon. Divide dough into six parts, rolling into a ball and then pressing flat on the baking sheet. You can use a knife to score the top of the bread with the symbol of a cross, if desired.

Bake for 12-14 minutes, until lightly golden around the edges. Allow to cool.

*Though olive oil is the biblical precedent, you
can certainly substitute with other types of oil.
