   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   3               cups  all-purpose flour
   2          teaspoons  baking powder
   2          teaspoons  salt
   8        tablespoons  unsalted butter -- (1 stick), cut into sm 
pieces and chilled
   1                cup  plain yogurt
      3/4           cup  sesame seeds -- toasted
      1/3           cup  poppy seeds
   2              large  eggs
   1         tablespoon  sugar

Homemade crackers are easy to make, and the resulting crisps can host 
almost any cheese, from a semisoft or soft ripened like Brie to a 
semihard one like goat's milk Cheddar. 

Prepare the dough: Preheat oven to 350F.  Pulse together flour, 
baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a 
metal blade.  Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles 
coarse meal.  Transfer the flour mixture to a large bowl and add the 
yogurt, 1/2 c sesame seeds, and poppy seeds.  Stir just until the 
ingredients are incorporated.  Divide the dough into quarters, wrap 
in plastic wrap, and chill for 10 min.

Bake the crackers:  Lightly coat a baking sheet with vegetable oil 
and set aside.  Lightly beat the eggs and sugar together in a sm bowl 
until the sugar dissolves and set aside.  Roll the dough out on a 
lightly floured surface to a 10" by 16" rectangle about a 1/4" thick. 
Brush the dough with the egg wash and sprinkle evenly with the 5" 
rectangles and bake on the prepared baking sheet until browned - 
about 25 min.  Transfer crackers to a wire rack to cool completely 
and store in an airtight container until ready to serve for up to 1 week.
