      These are really good, S'kat. I like that they're pretty nutritious and the flavor is good, although I think they might benefit from some pepper sprinkled on top with the salt and/or a touch of some other spice in the dough. My only qualm is that even after a couple days of sitting in a paper bag, they're not very crisp or crackerlike- they're a little more of a biscuit-like texture or like a piecrust. Tender and flakey... which is *good*, just not what I'm looking for in a cracker. I rolled them in slightly varying thicknesses just to see which thickness would be best- but they're all about the same. Very buttery tasting and tender and flakey. I do like the recipe, but perhaps it could use a little more flour for crispness or something? Thanks for posting. The directions are clear and easy to follow and the recipe works as stated, just the end texture left something to be desired for crackers.
