Old-Fashioned Soda Crackers

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Wildflour

When I was in Mexico, one of the silliest but best things I remember eating, were homemade soda crackers that were served with our meal. They were still warm right out of the oven, and heavenly. We had them in a quaint little restaurant in a village called Taxco. These are just like them! It makes a lot, but you won't believe how quickly you'll go through them!!

Nice crackers. I modified this based on what I had on hand, I used Whole Wheat flour, and I used my noodle maker to roll it thin. Also taking the recommendation of another recipe I baked these directly on my pizza stone. These turned out great. I like them a bit darker so I had to watch while baking, but they didn't take long directly on the stone.
