Wheat-free Potato Crackers

(Enough for 1 person)

125 ml (½ cup) potato, cooked
125 ml (½ cup) potato flour/starch
1 egg
2 ml Xanthan gum (optional)
0.5 ml (½ teaspoon) salt
5 ml olive oil
5 ml baking powder

Additional: Potato flour/starch

Pre-heat oven to 180ºC*.
Put baking paper in baking sheets.
Mash the cooked potato till there are no lumps. (I used my food processor.)
Add the potato flour/starch, egg, Xanthan gum, salt, olive oil and baking powder and mix well.
Add additional potato flour/starch till it forms a pliable dough.
Roll dough out to 2 mm on lightly dusted potato flour/starch surface.
With a fork prick holes all over the dough.
Cut shapes (4-5 mm) and place ±5 mm apart on baking paper covered baking sheet.
Bake at 180ºC for 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown.

*All the ovens aren’t the same and most people bake on 200ºC but I bake all my baking goodies on 180ºC.
