You really must check out Joy's blog at (the cooking of Joy)blog.
This is her wonderful recipe- I could not resist in sharing it with you all. These crackers are so good and flavorful you can't just eat one handfull.
I love oyster crackers- and with this recipe you can make the crackers as big or small as you want. I like to use a shot glass size. First fill shot glass with your favorite drink and then drink,now you are ready to roll out the first batch. Repeat until all 4 batches are cut out and the bottle is empty! Enjoy.
