MINI CRACKER VARIATIONS
So many spices, so many ways to make these your very own creation. A few spice variations that I want to try are:
Instead of air drying them for a couple of hours you can bake them at a low temperature, 250-300 degrees, for about 10-15 minutes. Be careful not to burn…the red pepper flakes burn easy and really taste yucky when burnt! Take if from experience🤦♀️
You can easily skip mixing these mini crackers in a bowl and go directly to the plastic zip lock gallon bag step.
Store these yummies in an airtight container. Before serving gently shake the storage container before serving.
