These cracker are a variation of the traditional Armenian flatbread lavash. Made with black and white sesame seeds, these crackers have an attractive finish. These crackers are made with a blend of plain and whole wheat flour for a rich multigrain flavor. Seasoned with fresh oregano and sea salt these crackers are the perfect accompaniment to a cheese plate on a wine night. Bake time is 15 to 18 minutes. The crackers will keep for up to a week.
