I was looking for a unique idea for appetizers for my upcoming wedding reception. I wanted to make the crackers for my crackers/cheese display. I bought a loaf of "Wonder Bread" and decided to experiment a bit. I rolled out a slice of wonder bread, very thin. I then buttered it and sprinkled garlic salt on it. I cut out heart shapes with my cookie cutter and placed them on a non-stick pan. I baked them in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 275 degrees F.
They came out perfect! Little golden-colored, heart-shaped crackers! They will make a great addition to my appetizer tray, especially since you can create the "crackers" in any design you want with the cookie cutters. My daughter and I are going to try using cinnamon sugar on the next batch and see if they work as well- then we'll have homemade crackers and cookies!
Note: 1 loaf of bread makes about 52 crackers (2 per slice).

Kids love to make these! Spring is here which means rain! In those days when the kids can not play outside, make this with them!

My mom used to make a kind of light cracker that she called "milk crackers". I think she soaked soda crackers in milk, drained them a little then baked them. I honestly don't remember as I was pretty young. I just remember that they were light and melted in your mouth. If anyone has a recipe similar, please let me know! Thanks!
There is a recipe for "apple" pie using soda crackers.
Basic Soda Crackers
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. sour milk
1 lg. egg
In large bowl sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture is very fine. Add milk and egg. Mix to form a dough. Knead thoroughly and roll very thin. Cut into squares or rounds and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Prick crackers with fork. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden.
Using homemade or packaged pie crust you too can make savory soup crackers. Add your favorite spices prior to baking and heat up some soup.
