Herbed Pita Crisps

Herbed Pita Crisps

4 white or whole-wheat pita breads

2 large garlic cloves, peeled, crushed

6 T. olive oil

2 T. fresh thyme leaves or 2 teaspoons dried thyme

1 1/2 t. salt

1 t. black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Using scissors or a serrated knife, cut each pita into 5 strips. Snip the end of each strip and separate to make 2 single-layer strips. Place the pita strips split side up in a single layer on baking sheets.

In a small bowl, stir the garlic into the oil. Brush each strip with the garlic olive oil. Sprinkle evenly with the thyme, salt and pepper.

Bake until crisp and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool. Serve at room temperature, with or without dips.

Makes 40 strips.
