Communion Bread/Cracker/Cookie?

Ok, so before you ask me why the heck I am talking about baking communion bread, let me explain. Ever since I was a little girly, we would have this special bread at my church. I never had any clue as to what it really was. Bread? Cracker? Cookie? It was such a unique and wonderful taste. In fact, it was so good that we used to go around to all the tables when we were done, and scarf it all up. Yes, I’m not sure if we really understood the meaning then. It was just darn tasty.

As you can see above, the recipe is now located in the “Lauren’s Family Cookbook.” (Compliments of my mother last Christmas). I found the recipe in an ancient Church Cookbook and thought it necessary to make it every communion in my dad’s new church. The recipe involves many odd steps, but the end result is taasssstyyy.
