From a favorite site called Wild Salmon Kitchen dot com. They call these Ann and Bill's crackers. I just started calling them Classy crackers. These are easy, cheap and quite elegant. I lived very remote for several years in Alaska and you learn to make things that you might be buying. Only to discover you save money and it is enjoyable to create and tastes great.
