Comment on Homemade Cheez-It Crackers by Steve Moyer.

Back in the ’70s I used to work at the Sunshine plant in KC,KS and we could buy a box of Cheez-Its for a quarter in the employee store. I would stock up and use them instead of saltines. My favorite was to make a pot of tomato soup and crumble the Cheez-its into the soup. I still do that but at today’s prices far less often. I’ll definitely try a batch of these! Has to be cheaper than store bought.
