With an omni Halloween party potluck to attend over the weekend, I had to keep in mind a set of criteria for what I would bring. I wanted it to be festive, it had to be savory (just about everyone else brought sweets), it couldn’t be too “weird” (for the vegan skeptics) and it of course had to taste great. Without time to make a special grocery trip for this, I also had to make use of ingredients I had on hand. I opted to try Have Cake Will Travel’s Cheezy Quackers. I had been wanting to try these for the longest time! I even bought a set of mini cookie cutters a few months back specifically for this recipe and others that have been popping up like it.
I am no baker, yet these crackers were rather easy to make. The most tedious part of the process is just the cutting because you are making so many of the little guys. The taste is quite reminiscent of the traditional gold fish crackers of yore. It took all kinds of will power to not gobble up half the batch before I even made it to the party.
I opted to use my plain mini oval shape cutter and attempted to fashion grooves to make the crackers look like pumpkins. My artistic skills didn’t really translate so the crackers didn’t look much like pumpkins, but oh well. People appreciated that I tried and that is why they are my friends.

The crackers were a big hit at the party! I even got a recipe request. There is also the bragging right factor that comes from boasting that you made crackers from scratch. I will absolutely be making this winning recipe again, perhaps I'll add some cayenne pepper for a spicy version. Very much appreciated, Have Cake Will Travel.
