Crispy Rye and Seed Crackers


Homemade crackers are an easy way to serve something special at your next dinner party, or just to make snack time feel a little more decadent. This recipe for seeded rye crackers comes from Food52, and good news parents: they’re toddler-approved. Find the recipe by following the link below.
