Sweet Crackers with Dried Fruit These Dried Fruit Crackers are addictive and absolutely delicious. They are great addition to a cheese and fruit platter.

We are baking Crackers for this month’s Bread Bakers. Our lovely host for the month, Sue who blogs at Palatable Pastime asked us to bake crackers or crisp lavash of any flavor and with any flour. So I made these lightly sweet and absolutely addictive Dried fruit Crackers.Sweet Crackers with Dried FruitI went straight to King Arthur flour website to look for cracker recipes and they sure had quite a few of them. But these dried fruit crackers caught my eye because they are slightly sweeter and I prefer sweet snacks to savory ones. Also I knew my raisins and dry fruit loving kids would love these.

These dried fruit crackers are crisp and are studded with nuggets of dried fruit. They are flavored with ground coriander — yup you read that right, it’s ground coriander. I was a little worried if the crackers will be too savory tasting for my taste, but it’s very subtle.Sweet Crackers with Dried FruitMy kids didn’t even pick up on the spice. They absolutely loved them and have been snacking on them ever since. These dried fruit crackers are great with cheese and they make a great addition to any cheese and fruit platter (and with some wine, yes – please).

    I am really curious to bake these as the ingredients sound very different and interesting. Your crackers look soft and studded with dried fruits. Must be really yummy!
