Taste wise these crackers deserve the full 5 stars and more. They are sooo delish! Very fruity with a subtle hint of spice from the pepper. YUM! The texture is great, too. More like a cookie with a soft center and crunchy edges, but very good for dipping into all sorts of things or just nibbling on. :)
However I had great trouble working with the dough: I made half the recipe using slightly less oil than called for and the dough was so wet that I had to knead in about 1/2 cup more to make it resemble anything like cookie dough. It was still soft, but manageable then. I ended up freezing the dough for 1/2 hour to make it sliceable. That way it worked out well and I ended up with one of the best crackers Ive ever eaten, but getting there was a bit of a struggle.
I got about 30 crackers from half the recipe even though I sliced mine quite thickly.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe here with us, with some tweaking its the bomb! :)
