“These are delicious, simple and quick. You won't even know that the "crisp" is a saltine cracker. A cross between a cookie and candy, you break these up like you would peanut brittle or peppermint bark; they make a nice addition to any cookie platter or gift in a tin for the holidays or anytime of the year. You may use other nuts in place of the pecans (walnuts, almonds, etc). Prep and cook time does not include cooling time.”
35-40 crackers
