Swedish Knäckebröd

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

Awesome Swedish flatbread. Goes well with soups and cheeses. Comes out similar to Rye Crisp. You can try this with wheat flour instead of rye. I would not recommend plain white flour but any 'grain' flour tried might be interesting. World Tour 2005

Absolutely wonderful bread (I keep callin' 'em crackers, though), & easy enough to make, I thought! Used the rye flour, which I really liked, & then thinned out some lingonberry preserves to use as a dip for some of them! Great, great snack! Thanks for the recipe!
