I picked up a package of 6 of these individually wrapped crisp breads at the wine store tonight, withought really reading the label. They looked like they would be good for cheese. Then, I opened one up and read the label -- they are not at all good for cheese, and they are an unbelievably delicious crisp bread, made with flour and anise and sesame seed, and sprinkled with sugar. The anise flavor is just strong enough, the sugar is crunchy and partially carmelized -- the whole thing goes way beyond sweet and salty into some perfect flavor combination. So now I'm hooked. I've found an on-line source: and have learned that they are a traditional Spanish crispbread Has anyone else discovered these little cracker miracles?
