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.
