MAKING MATZAH WITH YOUR CHILDREN FOR PASSOVER

In their hurry to leave Egypt, the Israelites did not have time to wait for their bread to rise so they made matzah. A great way to teach your children the Passover story is to make matzah with them, just like the Jewish slaves did thousands of years ago.



Ingredients:
• cold water from the faucet
• flour


Utensils:
• measuring cups
• large bowl for dough
• rolling pin
• fork to make holes in the dough
• cookie sheets
• spatula

*All utensils should be kosher for Passover.


Directions:

Set oven on highest temperature setting

At this point, the clock starts to tick. There must be no more than 18 minutes from the time the water is mixed with the flour until the time the matzah has been completely baked in the oven.    

Depending on how many matzot you want, measure 1 part water and 3 parts flour.

Quickly mix and knead into a firm ball of 1-2 inches.

Roll out dough as thin as possible.

Poke holes in the dough with a fork.

Check to make sure no more than 15 minutes passed since the flour and water were mixed. Put matzah onto the greased cookie sheet in the hot oven.

Bake for 2-3 minutes until done.
