Very tasty and very easy to make. I liked this not too sweet recipe and the kids agreed! My toddlers loved these little crackers. I didn't have buttermilk so I used plain yogurt instead. The dough was a little sticky so I ended up using a little bit more flour. This recipe is exactly what I was looking for.

These were delicious. The kids loved them. I used 1 cup of cheerios instead of the oatmeal because I didn't have oatmeal. I think they blend into flout a little bit easier than the oatmeal, too. I also used regular milk. My kids are begging me for more, so I'll be making them again, and again, and again.

Very good! I used larger cookie cutters than I would have liked, but I wanted to use animal shapes LOL I couldn't NOT put a skiff of white frosting on them with the colored sprinkles!! Fun cookie , and not overly sweet at all .. I actually only used the frosting for the picture , I doubt I'd put it on anymore cookies .. I like 'em just the way the recipe states them to be! Thanks!!!
