For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide
On a floured surface roll out the dough into a round approx1/2 inch thick. Place on a plain baking sheet. Pinch the edges and prick the top of the mixture with a fork.
Bake the mixture for approx 35-45 minutes until firm and a warm golden brown colour. While still warm(but NOT hot) cut into slices or triangles. Some would suggest that you then sprinkle with caster sugar but this is really sugar "overkill".
