    Good crackers that are much like saltines, but don't break as easily. To get them crispy and browned, I did cook them almost 20 minutes. Recipe makes about 10 dozen crackers 1/8 to 3/16 inches thick. I used an ungreased cookie sheet, and they did not stick. The second time I made these, I substituted 2 cups cornmeal and whole wheat flour for the plain flour, and added 3 tbs sugar. These turned out well, too! For a theme party, I will make them again and cut with different shaped cookie cutters. They are sturdy enough to use for thick spreads or for dipping. Thanks Love4, for sharing this recipe.

    Great recipe. I solved the salt sticking problem by dusting the dough with coarse salt and rolling it into the dough lightly before I cut it into crackers. Works great. Be careful they cook fast.<br/>They taste great and it was a simple dough to make.

    I added about 1c of flaxseed meal to this recipe, and used pink Himalayan salt, and, whoa, delisioso, I have to say!

    They taste okay, but were not crisp like saltines. I remember making homemade crackers a few years back and there was no lard or shortening in that old recipe. Wish I could find it. I wound up making breakfast biscuits with the rest of the dough for the crackers. Turned out great. This recipe has the same ingredients as my biscuit recipe. I think this recipe would make nice "chicken in a biscuit" crackers because they are not crisp....more along the texture of cookies but not hard like a crisp cookie. I will let them sit over night and see how they are in the morning. I might try this recipe again sometime with no shortening in it. Thanks for the recipe! Great try!

    really yummy!! i doubt I'll buy store crackers again especially since this recipe is so easy to "play" with and adapt. Instead of sprinkling the salt on top I mixed some seasoned salt in with the flour and it came out great!!

    These were great. I halved the recipe and put in food processor using oil instead of the shortening. A definite keeper.
