    WaterMelon's Note:

    Makes an excellent accompaniment to hummus or other spread. I just discovered that I love dipping them into garlic/onion flavored cream cheese. I also love them with soups. Sesame oil gives these crackers a strong, nutty taste. If you want a milder cracker, substitute shortening for some of the oil. Yield 6 dozen crackers. (From King Arthur Flour's Baking Companion)

      Sorry but we didn't like these. They were not light like crackers, and the sesame was overpowering. I probably won't make these again.

      It was a lot of fun to make my own crackers! I was having and oriental salad for supper (#121805) and thought these would be the perfect accompaniment. They were! Can't wait to try them with some of the dips/spreads you recommended too. Thanks Watermelon for a great recipe!

      I made these yesterday afternoon. They are very good. I have never made crackers before and this was my first try. I thought I could use my pasta attachment but that didn't work, it only made a mess. I ended up rolling them by hand, which wasn't bad after all. I made Garlic Boursin cheese #31669 to go with them and it was great!!
