- Place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and use a knife to cut a deep X in the dough.

- If dough is too sticky to shape into a ball, try dusting with flour or wetting your hands. Be careful not to add too much flour – its ok if the dough is a little sticky!
- This recipe is easy to experiment with! Replace the onion & herbs with additions of your choice. We like combinations like: cranberries & almonds, parmesan & bacon, chocolate chips & cinnamon. What combination would you like to try?
- The combination of vinegar and milk creates buttermilk. Already have buttermilk on hand? It is ok to substitute 1 cup + 1 tablespoon buttermilk for the water, milk and vinegar ingredients.
