We went to our favorite cheesemonger a couple weeks ago and bought some cheese and crackers. We were browsing around for a new cracker and asked him for recommendations. He practically pressed these Ak-Mak crackers into our hands; he got rather intense about it!
Have you ever made crackers? These Buttermilk Saltines at Nika's Culinaria are really impressive - they take two days to make! Most of that is rise time for the dough, however, and the recipe itself is not complicated. It looks like a fun rainy day project, and Nika says that this is easy to do with kids. We just want to serve (and eat) these as a special treat with a homemade dip or spread.
