Old-Fashioned Soda Crackers

“When I was in Mexico, one of the silliest but best things I remember eating, were homemade soda crackers that were served with our meal. They were still warm right out of the oven, and heavenly. We had them in a quaint little restaurant in a village called Taxco. These are just like them! It makes a lot, but you won't believe how quickly you'll go through them!!”
