Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 cups rye flour
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter softened and diced
  • 6 to 8 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • Fennel seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place flours, sugar, salt, and dry mustard in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a knife blade. Pulse until combined.
  3. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  4. Sprinkle water, 1 tablespoon at a time, over surface and pulse until dry ingredients are moistened.
  5. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and shape into a disk.
  6. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Move dough around while rolling to keep from sticking from work surface.
  7. Cut dough into 1- to 1 1/2-inch squares or diamonds using a fluted pastry cutter.
  8. Place cut dough on ungreased baking sheets about 1/2-inch apart. Brush with egg whites and sprinkle tops lightly with fennel seeds.
