These are super delicious! Very nice with a little kosher salt sprinkled on top before baking. I am still experimenting with baking time. The crackers around the edges cook faster, so I remove them and put the rest back into the oven. I've been rolling the dough right on my cookie sheets but I think it's causing them to stick to the pan a little. I am wishing I had a pasta roller to experiment with. Thanks for this recipe - I love the flavour, so I'll keep trying and come up with a method that works for me ;-)
