RAINCOAST CRISPS -- knock-offs.

from jkr

2 cups white flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 cup of raisins or dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans or pistachios
1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Stir together four, baking soda, brown sugar and salt.
Add buttermilk and honey, lightly combine. Add remaining ingredients. Stir until just blended.

Pour into two greased loaf tins. Bake for 45 minutes, until golden brown and springy to the touch.
Remove from pans and cool.
Place in plastic bags overnight. You can also freeze them at this point as well if preferred.

Preheat oven to 300F.
Slice the loaves as thin as possible.
Arrange slices on a cookie sheet.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes on each side.
Slices should be very dry and crisp like melba toast.

This will keep a very long time in a sealed container.

Good with soft cheeses or use as cookies.

Authentic Raincoast Crisps are a specialty cracker made in Vancouver and sold in fine stores. Really
expensive to buy but very popular on cheese trays.
