1 cup almond meal
seasonings of choice (sweet or savory!)
Combine meal and seasonings in a bowl using a fork. Break up any clumps in the almond meal. Crack egg directly into the bowl and mix well will fork. It will make a crumby dough.
Technique #1: Drop the ball of dough onto a foil lined sheet pan. (The foil is important!) Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and pat flat. Get it close to a quarter of an inch as possible. Use a rolling pin to roll it out even flatter. The flatter you can get them the crisper they will be. Use a pizza cutter to score squares or diamonds into the flattened dough.
Technique #2: Roll a teaspoons worth of dough into a ball. Place it on a foil lined sheet pan and cover with a small square of parchment. Use a can with a shallow lip and flatten the ball into a thin disk. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Bake at 325 until they begin to brown. Technique 1 took about 30 minutes and Technique 2 took about 15 minutes. #1 was definitely faster but #2 was prettier.
