    You can break them up after baking, I find it easier to roll it between wax paper sheets and cut it with a pizza wheel if I'm looking for "perfect" squares.

    Do they have to be cut out before hand, or could they be rolled, baked, then broken up? I always find it difficult to roll gf dough out very thin without it sticking or breaking.

    They will spread a bit more... decrease the water by about 1-2 tbsp and it should be okay.

    I don't have shortening on hand. Can I use butter?

    I don't know about you, but I consume a fair amount of soy in my diet and I haven't suffered any ill effects thus far. I figure it's a lot better to focus on the overall nutrition than fad scare tactics by various groups. Eggs, fat, calories, milk, meat and soy are all healthy in their own right - it's overconsumption that is the problem in our diet.

    Hey jo_jo_ba, did you know that soy products are unhealthy in the U.S.?Yeah, weird, i know. They are only healthy if they are the REAL DEAL from China. THe U.S.made something more healthy into something unhealthy and is selling it as MORE healthy than others. It is just like when the Indians smoked it wasn't unhealthy but when the U.S. started to smoke we added all of these extra ingredients so that it is bad and now TONS of people die from it every day.

    I'm sure soy milk would work well since it doesn't seem to need the fat in milk, I regularly cook with fatfree soy milk. I've never bought a GF flour mix simply because it's too expenseive for me to, but if you try it let me know!

    Have you tried them with a milk substitute? Soy milk or Rice milk? I cook Gluten free Casein free for my son and a cracker recipe would be great! Also, have you made them with a purchased GF flour mix? I prefer to use a purchased GF mix as opposed to mixing my own. Thanks.

    Gotta say thanks for this recipe. My poor gluten-allergic mom is climbing the walls trying to adapt to wheat-free dining and she really missed crackers. I made these and she ate them with cheddar cheese and fresh concord grapes and pronounced them "not saltines, but very good." They are easy to make, too.
