Spiced crackers have many versions and many names across the cooking blogosphere and home kitchens. These are probably called “those crackers you make for Christmas gifts” more than any other name in my house. But, these are good anytime and I didn’t want to ban them other people’s houses just during the holiday season.
These crackers are very easy to make and definitely more frugal than anything loaded with chocolate or nuts. Packed into small baggies, the crackers make a great filler for a cookie tray that has a small space left and you are out of cookie cooking or candy making steam.
Larger containers of spiced crackers can work as a stand-alone hostess gift. I have used these crackers for both purposes.
