Honey flat bread (Communion bread)

Tonight I made one of our family favorites - flatbread.  It's made with scalded milk and honey and is soooo good.  We actually use it for a communion bread on the occasion when we have church at home. 

3/4 c scalded milk
1/4 c honey
1/4 c butter
1 t salt
1 egg
2 1/2 c flour

Warm milk, honey & butter.  Beat egg in a seperate bowl.  In a large bowl, mix salt into flour.  Stir milk mixture slowly into flour.  Add egg.  Continue to stir until all flour is incorporated.  Knead dough adding more flour but just until it doesn't stick to your hands. 

Roll out on greased cookie sheet pan.  Prick with fork and stripe with knife.  This is to symbolize Christ's sacrifice for each of us.  Isaiah 53:3 "But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed."
Yes, my pan is an oldie but a goodie.
Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.  Rub a stick of butter over hot flatbread until top is lightly coated.  Cut into squares.  Serve with grape juice or wine for communion or steak and salad for supper.

Or sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar for a sweet snack.  Or do all three.
