While visiting our daughter a few months ago, she served a really yummy “cracker” I had never seen before. I’m not sure what they were but they were like a small, thin, flavorful toast. I fell in love with them immediately! She had gotten them at Trader Joe’s. Unfortunately, we don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby, so I either had to buy a bunch and schlep them home, or I had to find a way to recreate them.
Once again I turned to my bff Google, and (as usual) she didn’t let me down. Come to find out, I’m not the only one who loves these crisps. There was a plethora of blog posts devoted to both the Trader Joe’s crisps and a similar cracker named Raincoast Crisps. I have never seen nor tasted Raincoast Crisps, so I’m not sure how similar my recipe is.
I loved the fig & olive combination but I wanted to add some seeds and nuts, as well. I have made them many times and have learned that anything goes when it comes to what you want to add or leave out.
One recipe makes about 80 crisps, and they will keep for a very long time if kept in an air tight container. Ours never last long enough to have to worry about them getting stale.
Let me know how you like them, and what combinations you come up with!
