Communion bread or communion wafers are used in religious services all over the world. Traditionally, the communion wafer is unleavened and uses only a few ingredients. Today, some churches, homes and religious institutions are making their own communion bread to use for special services, or year-round. Communion bread can be adjusted to suit dietary needs as well as religious obligations.
Baking Communion Wafers
Mix together your base ingredients of oil, water, flour and salt, using 1 cup of hot water, 2 tablespoons of oil and 1 teaspoon of salt to every 3 cups of flour.
Knead the wafer dough on a floured surface until it no longer sticks, then roll out to your desired thickness.
Cut your separate wafers from the rolled out dough into your desired shape (round, rectangular, hexagonal) with a very sharp knife, bottle cap or cracker/cookie cutter.
Bake the wafers in a 400 degree oven until golden brown. Once cool, they can be stored in a cool, dry place up to two weeks.
