Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Homemade Animal Crackers Recipe

Originally uploaded by Laurel714

Well, since I just did a post slamming the Girl Scouts for not making homemade baked goods for their public service project, I thought it would be useful to offer another contrast between store-bought and homemade using another popular food item – the animal cracker.

Who, among us, has not had Barnum’s Animal Crackers? They evoke great childhood memories. I still buy a box, from time-to-time, but I am always disappointed in the taste – and they are not all that healthy for you either.

I found a homemade animal cracker recipe that is healthy, and boy, do they look good – good enough to eat.
