- Dissolve yeast and sugar in 2 cups lukewarm water, add 2 tablespoons melted butter.
- Combine flour, rosemary, pepper and salt. Stir yeast mixture into flour until combined.
- Turn dough onto a floured surface, and knead for 5-10 minutes adding a little more flour if necessary to form a smooth and elastic dough. Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover with lightly oiled plastic wrap, set aside in a warm spot for one hour, until doubled in size.
- "Knock back" dough and knead lightly into a log, divide into 12 portions. Roll each portion out into a long, free form shape (around 30-40cm long) of around 1-2mm thickness.
- Transfer dough to a lined baking tray and brush with butter before baking in batches at 180°C for 8 minutes, until just firm and pale, remove from baking tray, turn and cook directly on oven racks for a further 5 minutes until golden. Remove and cool completely on a wire rack (the wafers will crisp on cooling). Serve with antipasto, cheese or dips.
- These wafers can be stored in an airtight container for approximately 2 weeks.
