Saltine Cracker – BP Challenge

Its time for Baking Partners challenge. This time Arthy Shama of  Cooking with ArthyShama had given us two types of Crackers. Saltine & Graham Crackers.I have opted for Saltine cracker 

This a yeast based cracker. Yes I am trying to befriend with yeast again. Don’t know the reason but my migrane triggers with active dry yeast. But with Instant yeast , I am OK.
