Herbed Crackers

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Bluenoser

Yes you can really bake your own crackers instead of getting them out of a package. These are so flavorful that they need no topping; however, if you like you can serve them with some cheese or a spread.

I love this recipe. The crackers produced are excellent, though I used onion powder rather then minced onion. They are rather garlicy as is, so next time I might use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. I also grated some Parmesan cheese into the dough for that little extra something. Note, the crackers do not expand while being baked so you can have them relatively close together.
