Angus Barn “Flatbread” Crackers

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
5 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups warm water
Optional toppings: sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic flakes, onion flakes, herbs de Provence, Italian seasoning, black sesame seeds, etc.

In the bowl of an electric mixer with dough hooks, layer flour, yeast, salt, oil and water. Mix on lowest speed until well blended. Turn mixer to medium and mix for 15 minutes. Remove bowl from mixer, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Remove bowl from refrigerator, uncover and allow to stand at room temperature for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Pinch off a piece of dough about the size of a large biscuit. Roll into a ball and place on a floured surface. Roll to about 1/16th inch thick. Transfer to a standard baking sheet and poke holes in the top of dough. (Top with seeds or herbs, if desired, pressing lightly into the dough.) Using a pizza cutter, cut into desired shapes.

Bake 6 to 8 minutes, until light brown. Repeat until all dough is used. Cool to room temperature and serve. Store in a tin to keep crackers crisp.
