The next BBA “bread” on my list was Lavash Crackers! I had never heard of Lavash before but Peter Reinhart explains that it is an Armenian flatbread. I was so excited to get started on this one. So excited that I made it twice! Not really.

Let me explain.

Part of this recipe calls for you to spritz a little water on the dough before you sprinkle the seeds and spices. Well, I keep my water bottle on my kitchen windowsill along with a bottle of Windex. See where this is going?

I grabbed what I thought was water and sprayed it on the dough. Luckily I had to open a new bottle of poppy seeds which gave me time to go “Wow, it sure does smell like Windex in here!”

So I made the dough twice. And I didn’t mind at all because this was such a pretty dough. It was smooth and soft and so easy to work with. The only problem I had was that I couldn’t get it to roll out thin enough which is totally my fault because I wanted it to fit perfectly on my silicone sheet (Oh yes, no more aluminum foil for me!) and didn’t want to waste any dough.

They were still very good, I just had to bake them a little longer than the recipe said to get them crispy. My 2 year old loved them and has already asked me to make more.
