Char-BOO-terie Crackers

By 12/21/2022December 31st, 2022No Comments

This is one of those recipes that started as another idea that morphed into it’s own standalone recipe. Honestly, these little ghosties turned out so cute and were super easy to make, that I made three batches of these buggers  topped with sea salt but imagine mixing up the flavors and topping with Everything Bagel seasoning or sesame seeds. Yum!  Using a pizza cutter makes quick work of creating fun ghost shapes, but in one batch I used ghost cookie cutters to cut out mini crackers as well. I like the rustic whimsical look of the irregular shaped ghosts best, but using all of them together is a fun feast for the eyes. Enjoy!
