  1. I love these cracker! But I changed them up a bit after a trip to Louisiana! I added some smoked paprika or regular paprika to the recipe, yum!! I used 1-2 teaspoons. Try it, it changes them up just a bit!

  2. I bet the paprika is delicious in this recipe – I definitely need to try that soon!
