I may have mentioned once or twice that I like to bake - but can't let myself because I looooove to eat the results!
I've also frequently mentioned that I'm slightly hooked on a few crackers that I've bought. (Dr Karg, I love you....) But they're expensive, and I'm trying to cut back - so I decided to make some. I chose spicy polenta cheese crackers because 1) I had all the ingredients except for buttermilk in the house and 2) I'm not as big a fan of cheese-flavoured savoury baked goods as I am of many others - so I'm more likely to be able to resist them.
I've just tried one, and though I do quite like them, this remains the case! Still, they'll keep for 2 weeks, and I will definitely be willing to eat them in that time. Now I need to find another recipe to use up the pot of buttermilk, as I used relatively little of it. I halved the recipe in case I didn't like the cheesiness. This is the first time I've baked my own crackers, and it was fun - but next time I'll make seeded crackers or flavour them with herbs instead. Maybe sea salt and rosemary would be nice... See, there will be a next time...
I made them kind of rustic and home-made looking, aren't they pretty?
