The Daring Bakers go Crackers!


A very short and sweet post this month, but I am supposed to start packing for the plane that leaves in 12 hours to take me home. I am/was away in gorgeous Halifax, so I only got one cracker made instead of 2, but it was delicious. I made a twice baked whole wheat cracker with figs, pecans, rosemary and pumpkin seeds. I sort of followed this link, but used different fruit and flour. That's what I call following a recipe. They were delicious with blue cheese and I'll be making more as soon as it's cool enough to turn the oven on again.

Thanks Dana for a great challenge!
Blog-checking lines: Our July 2012 Daring Bakers’ Host was Dana McFarland and she challenged us to make homemade crackers! Dana showed us some techniques for making crackers and encouraged to use our creativity to make each cracker our own by using ingredients we love.

Your crackers are beautifu and sound delicious! I'm imagining those crackers with bleu cheese and a glass of red wine. What a happy thought.

I don't know which looks better, those delicious crackers or that gorgeous piece of cheese! And I must tell you that while I have never been there, Lunenburg is a place we are seriously thing of moving to in 5 years (really)
