I work online for much of the day, and by mid-afternoon I usually start to feel a little fried from staring at my laptop screen, and in need of a pick-me-up. I've been trying to create a more structured break time, a jause if you will, with a pot of tea or cider, and a small plate of something savory. I think these crackers—made with figs, walnuts, and flaxseeds, and perhaps smeared with a little bit of goat cheese or a dollop of apple butter—are calling my name. Mara from the blog Elemental Custard adapted this recipe from an Epicurious version. They only take about an hour to make, and have a slightly sweet, crunchy texture that pairs perfectly with a spread of your choice. A great mid-afternoon snack for Fall.
