Cheese Crackers with Parmesan from Italy is my next on the Bakes from the world. I love crackers and if it comes loaded with cheese, they top the list.
This dish was the first one to get done. In fact, this was for another theme, I had to skip that theme and it was lying around in the draft. This prompted me to double check on the country clause and the only thing I have done is the name play by not using the parmesan at the beginning.
These are much like the Cheezit or similar ones we get here. Only I read these were originally made from Italy and the commercial brand makes it similar.
When I was making these crackers, my boys were playing nearby and wanted to taste these right away. I had to cajole Chinnu a bit before he tasted this. After that, I literally had to request them to leave a batch for me to click the pictures. Since this one was ready, I never bothered to check out for other Cs.
