Firehouse Crackers

Joyce Lowery


These crackers are great! They are a hit with my kids. I first ate them at the camp when we had a cookout, but a friend at work named Dee Arceneaux gave me the recipe. The original recipe called for 3 tablespoons of crushed red pepper flakes. This was much too hot for me and my family. Adjust the heat for your taste.
