Unleavened Bread for The Eucharist

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup margarine (Or 5 very heaping tbsp margarine)
About 1 cup lukewarm water (add the water slowly mix with a fork , so dough isn't too sticky )
3 1/2 Tbsp honey

1. Mix together flour, soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.

2. Cut margarine into the flour mixture until it looks like cornmeal. (Use your fingers if you wish.)

3. Add honey to water and combine. Add to the dry mixture and combine with a fork. Take out of the bowl and knead on a floured board or counter until the dough is smooth.

4. Divide into 3 pieces plus a small piece for the 8 o'clock service. Flatten each piece into a circle about 6 to 7 inches across. (small piece 3 to 4 inches).  For easy breaking, mark a circle in the center of the  dough with a  round cookie cutter. Using a knife mark a cross through the center of the circle, to the edge of the bread. Between the cross lines cut 3 or 4  markings from the circle to the edge.  NOTE : The markings will stay better if you grease the knife and cookie cutter before using them.

Bake in a 350 F oven for 15  to 18 minutes. Watch carefully! Cool loaves covered with a clean towel so a crust doesn't form.
