  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Rub in the shortening until the mixture appears sandy. Stir in the buttermilk until the dough holds together. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thick. Cut into 4-inch squares, then cut each square diagonally into triangles, and prick with a fork.
  3. Bake the triangles in preheated oven on ungreased cookie sheets until dry and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Very good, in and of itself, but the name is misleading. Real hard tack does not have milk, oils, or sugar. These ingredients reduce the shelf time considerably. The nature of hard tack is its v...

Not true hardtack, but WHO CARES!?!? Best recipe I have ever made. It has become a tradition in my family that I will make it for Christmas. The last time I did this, I added a quarter teaspoon ...

So far so good! Smells great. Was looking to make proper British hardtack for our re-enactment group but agreed we'd like something more edible and practical. We don't need to store it for 100 y...

It's ok, if you don't keep the dough thin, expect to cook it for 20 minutes. Not hardtack, since using multiple fats probably taste better to slather in bacon grease.
