If you have butter, sugar, parmesan cheese, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes about 2 hours.
In the bowl of you stand mixer, combine approximately 2 cups of the bread flour, the water, yeast, and sugar. Stir to combine, cover, and set aside for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, heat the butter in a small pan until it begins to brown and starts to smell nutty - be careful not to let it burn. Take the pan off the heat and set aside to cool.
Add the remaining flour, along with the cooled butter, salt, and parmesan to the dough in the stand mixer bowl. Knead with the dough hook until the dough is smooth and elastic. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and flour your work surface. These are easier to roll out if you divide the dough into several pieces.
Roll your first piece to 8 inches high 1/8 inch thick, and as wide as it needs to be to reach those other dimensions. With a pizza or pastry cutter - or a sharp knife - trim 1/2 inch off the top and bottom of the dough, and trim the left and right sides to square them off.
Cut the dough vertically in strips about 1/4 inch wide and place the on a baking sheet, leaving room between them. As you place them on the sheet, they're likely to stretch to about 9 inches long - that's fine. You can leave them flat, or if you prefer, twist them into a spiral. Continue rolling and cutting until you have used up all the dough.
Bake until they are lightly browned, crisp, and completely dry - about 25 minutes.
Let them cool completely on a rack.
