This quick and easy gluten free cracker recipe was made for me when I went to visit a very dear friend in QLD last summer. We all feel very grateful when our loved ones go out of their way to cater to our gluten free food needs. It is a delicious but very healthy gluten free alternative to bought crackers and very simple to whip up as well. A tribute to my very active and healthy friend who went out of her way to give me a vessel for my cheese... I give you these very yummy gluten free crackers.
