Serves: 12Hands-on: 20 minutesTotal: 50 minutesDifficulty: Medium

Serves: 12


  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 2 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 2⁄3 cup water


  • Sift the salt into the flour. Add the remaining ingredients, adding the water slowly and not using more than necessary. Form the batter into a dough and knead until smooth. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • Cut the dough in half. Form each half into a cylinder. Lightly score the dough into 1⁄2-inch pieces and cut (you should have 12 pieces). Repeat with the other half.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece out into a 3 1⁄2-inch square, cutting edges straight if needed. Store wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to use.
