    This was an easy 5 ingredient recipe. I did not have lard and used 2 tbsp of unsalted butter. Nice flavor but would cut the salt down to 1/2 to 3/4 tsp. And try olive and seeds next time but easy breezy!

    These are wonderful! Quick to make and super tasty! I’ve tried these will herbs mixed in and I’ve also sprinkled them on the top with the salt after cooking. My family eats them quicker than I can make! ???? Thanks for a great recipe, they’ve become a family favorite!

    Like everything made from scratch, so much better than store bought crackers. Super easy and fast recipe. Next time I will try some variations like cracked pepper or rosemary garlic flavour.
