These were great. I did change the recipe a little. I was out of whole wheat flour and just used all white flour and I used clabbered milk ( add tbsp vinegar to milk to sour it) in place of the buttermilk. I used a pasta machine on the widest setting to roll it out, and it worked great. My granddaughter made them into shapes using cookie cutters and we gathered up the scraps many times to run through the pasta machine over and over. Just be sure to pat a little flour on the dough before putting into pasta machine, or it gets holes in it. We put made several varieties-poppy seeds , sesame seeds,grated parmesean cheese and some with plain salt. All were good. My grandaughter (8 years old) says they are the greatest. way better than store bought.Her favorite were the parmesean ones, We may try adding the parm to the dough too next time. It is a great snack to make for kids and it is a fun cooking activity for them too.
