This is my favorite home made cracker... bar none! They are easy and fun and so versatile. I buy my optional topping at the food co-op in bulk which is so much cheaper than buying little spice jars. These are great to snack on by themselves or with cheese, meats, fruits and dips. I like to break them into big pieces to give myself more options for displaying and serving.
