So if you're craving something to bite into with a chewy, toothy texture I recommend these. I love it when I get a hint of lemon zest and garlic in one bite. This is ugly comfort food at it's best. I usually make a double batch, throw half in the fridge and mysteriously the leftovers are gone by the end of the following day.

This is the mixture after kneading all the ingredients together for a few minutes. It comes together very quickly and the gluten becomes stringy. I find that you definitely need to add more oil to the pan when you flip them because they seem to soak up oil very quickly.
