Grainy Crackers

This recipe comes from a Danish friend, Liselotte. We call them “knækbrød” in Danish. It is a crispy cracker full of grains. You can eat the crackers with a topping eg. cheese or with your favorite dip. My favorite way to eat them is simply with a thin layer of butter. Liselotte likes to serve the crackers as an appetizer with caviar dip. You can shape them any way you like. The possibilities are endless.
