During this summer solstice the sun is in its highest position and makes it the longest day of the year. All this means to me, it’s Summer! And nothing screams more than fresh ripe

First of all, this recipe is soo easy, I am kicking myself why I have not making these more often. On top of that, if you have some dough in your freezer at all times, you are ready for any summer apero time. What counts the most is yummy-ness of course… well, this cracker has
