  • Ingredients:

    • 1 cup unbleached flour
    • 1 cup whole wheat flour
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup carob powder
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • 2 tbsp. butter or margarine

    2. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and shape into two 9x2-inch logs. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray and place the logs 4 inches apart on sheet. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool at room temperature for about 10 minutes.
    3. Use a serrated knife to slice the logs diagonally into 1/2 slices. Place the slices, cut side down, in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes or until dry and crisp. Turn slices over halfway through baking time. Cool completely on wire racks. Store in airtight container. Makes 24.
