Wheat-Free Sesame Seed Almond Flour Crackers

1 large whole egg

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

1¾ cups finely ground blanched almond flour

Place the oven rack in the center position and heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium-large bowl, whisk the egg, salt, pepper and sesame seeds together until combined. Add the almond flour and, using a rubber spatula, mix until it starts to come together. Using clean hands, mix and press together, until completely combined, into a ball.

Place the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper the size of the baking pan. With your hands, pat the dough out into a rough rectangle. Place another piece of the same size parchment paper over the dough. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to about 1/8-inch thickness.

Discard the top paper. Using a thin, sharp knife or a pizza wheel, cut the dough into roughly 1-inch squares. Transfer the cut crackers to the baking pan.

Bake the crackers for 16 minutes, until the crackers near the pan's edge are a light golden brown. Using a spatula, transfer those crackers to a cooling rack. Return the pan to the oven and bake for about 4 more minutes, or until a light golden brown.

Transfer those remaining crackers to a cooling rack; cool completely. When cool, transfer to an airtight container.

Makes 60 crackers.
