Hard Tack

⅛ teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons buttermilk
1 cup flour
4 teaspoons real maple syrup
¼ and ⅛ teaspoon salt
1 ½ tablespoon shortening

Mix baking soda and buttermilk, then set aside. Mix flour, maple syrup, 3/8 teaspoon salt, then cut in the shortening. Add the baking soda/buttermilk mixture. Roll out very thin, then score rectangles in the dough without cutting all the way through. Prick each rectangle several times with a fork. Bake 5-10 minutes or until golden brown at 425 degrees.
