Communion Bread Recipe

If you are serving the Body of Christ, you may have the opportunity to provide communion bread. This recipe was passed on when, as a young mom, I was elected to a women's ministry board. The woman who fostered the recipe was one of my mentors in high school, so this particular recipe has both sentimental and practical value. We celebrate communion on Sunday evenings and this recipe can be easily made that same afternoon.

May God be glorified through the service of His saints.

Sift together:
 2 c. Flour
1/2 tsp. Cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. Salt
3 tsp. Sugar
Cut in:
1/2 c. Shortening
Slowly add:
2/3 c. Milk
1 Egg
Stir briefly to a stiff dough.  Knead 5 times on lightly floured surface.  Roll into a ball and divide in half.  Roll one half of dough to fit cookie sheet (1/4" thick).  Fold and transfer to greased cookie sheet.  Poke entire surface with fork.  Bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes.  Roll and transfer remaining dough, poking with a fork before placing in the oven.
Remove bread from oven and cut immediately into thin strips from both directions. Discard corner and other uneven pieces.  Bread can be refrigerated or frozen.  Makes approximately 300 pieces. (This recipe was passed on by Helen Lange.)


  1. While this recipe was good. I'd like to here your thoughts on how we serve communion to the church body on a spiritual level.

  2. Thanks, Kathy! You've had me thinking, praying and studying for a couple of weeks now. Here's what spun around in my head after reading your comment. I'm so glad you stopped by and left and opportunity for us to think more deeply of Jesus!


I'd love to hear from you! Please share your experiences, thoughts, questions or comments. Thanks for stopping by.
