The recipe/ingredients are very simple. This was fun and easy to make. I had no idea what they how they would turn out but I like them a lot. They're hard and crunchy with the faintest sweetness in the background. Apparently you give them to babies when they're teething. They taste like breadsticks to me. Very yummy. Good snack. Read More
