Gluten free "cheese" crackers with fennel ... and some gnomes
My decorated effort was a gnome - with sundried tomato hat and jacket, olive taponade wellies, olive eyes and cashew cheese beard. Cashew cheese recipe - more or less this - http://chocolateandzucchini.com/recipes/dips-spreads/raw-cashew-cheese-recipe/ from Chocolate and Zucchini.
120g gluten free plain flour
salt and pepper
80g cold margarine (olive oil spread)
1 tbsp fennel seeds
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp crushed garlic
Rub fat into dry ingredients, herbs and spices.
When it looks like breadcrumbs, add enough cold water, and stir/kneed to bring it together.
When it is pastry-like - roll out between 2 pieces of floured greaseproof paper - cut out - lay onto greaseproof paper lined baking trays, pierce with a fork, and bake in pre-heated oven (about 10-12 minutes)
