    Aroostook's Note:

    This unleavened biscuit is just right for chowder... I sometimes use cream in place of milk for a richer cracker. If you do, use more than a cup..add liquid until mixture is sticky.

      This cracker recipe is easy and delicious! I did use all cream to make mine and we ate them with clam chowder - just wonderful to say the least! I was excited to find this recipe for as one of the other reviewers mentioned, it was the only one on the web - but it's the only one you's that good! Thanks for posting it.

      Although I can't really imagine going to the work of making my own crackers, every time I eat chowdah, or even peanut butter, I miss the late, utterly wonderful Nabisco Royal Lunch crackers. These sound very close, and with Aroostook being a Down Mainer, I am hopeful. I've saved the recipe and will be back to rate it when I make them.

      Store bought common crackers are very dry so this recipe is much better than store bought. It is also the only one that is online, an apparent secret!
