Gluten Free Crackers

If you have loved ones with celiac disease or gluten intolerant, you know how daily meals can become a difficult task. Although increasingly gluten free snakes are available, the selection is limited and the price is high. This prompted me to try to make something myself. The crackers I made with masa meal (corn meal treated with lime for making Mexican food, available in most supermarkets)turn out to be a success. Here is my rough draft recipe (I will post refined recipe later):
Rosemary Sesame Squares (Gluten Free Crackers):
3 C. masa meal+more;
1 stick of butter;
1/2 C. vegetable oil;
1 large cube of chicken bullion, about 1 teaspoon;
1/4 C. corn starch;
1 large eggs;
Garlic salt to taste;
Sprinkle of crushed rosemary;
Sesame seeds.
Mix all ingredients together, add additional masa meal as needed until it forms a nice pliable dough that can hold its shape. Roll dough out into thin sheet on a baking sheet, cover the surface with sesame seeds, press down with rolling pin. Cut the sheet with pizza cutter into 1-1/2" squares or other shapes. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 F until done, approximately 20 minutes.
Note: The chicken bullion cubes contain salt, so taste and adjust the final salt level after the dough is mixed.
