   Preparation Time: 0:45
   Combine 4 cups flour, yeast, and salt in a large mixing
   bowl; stir well.  Gradually add water to flour mixture,
   stirring well.  Add butter; beat at medium speed of an
   electric mixer until blended.  Gradually stir in enough
   remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Turn dough out onto
   a floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic
   (about 4 minutes).  Place in a well-greased bowl, turning
   to grease top.  Cover and let rise in a warm place (85
   degrees), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in
   bulk. Punch dough down, and divide into 10 equal portions.
   Shape each portion into a ball, and place on a lightly
   floured surface; let rest 10 minutes.
   
   Roll each ball to a 10-inch round on a lightly floured
   surface, rolling only enough to bake at one time.  Chill
   extra dough to slow down the rising process as you await
   oven space.  Place rolled rounds on lightly greased baking
   sheets. Brush lightly with cold water, and sprinkle lightly
   with sesame seeds.  Prick entire surface with fork.  (Do
   not allow to rise.)  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or
   until lightly browned and crisp.  Remove from pans, and let
   cool on wire racks.  Repeat with remaining balls of dough.
   Yield: 10 cracker rounds.    Recipe continues on Cracker
   Bread-Part 2.
