If you’re looking for a super inexpensive, cheap and delicious snack, you need to make some Cinnamon Sugar Crackers you can’t say no to.
To make an entire sheet of crackers costs less than a dollar. Seriously.
My mom used to make us cinnamon toast bread, and it was delicious. We could hardly wait to take it out of the oven. She’d spread the butter on the bread, mix some sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, and sprinkle it on the toast. Oh, man, it was delicious.
But, you can’t take the toast to work or school for a snack. So, what’s a girl to do?
Let’s Get Down to Business
Start with butter. Every dish should have butter. It should be a rule. If you start out with butter, you can’t go wrong.
Add in some saltine crackers (I buy mine at Aldi’s and they are dirt cheap and taste just the same as the name brands).
I melted one stick of butter in a small dish and mixed 1/4 cup of sugar and a tablespoon of cinnamon in another bowl.
The recipe and directions are listed at the bottom of the post.
Drop the crackers into the butter and make sure the crackers get covered well. Set them out on a baking sheet. Don’t leave them in the butter too long, or they will start to get a little soggy.
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the crackers with a spoon. Don’t be shy with the mixture. You can put a lot on the crackers. (It’s not always easy, but try not to get the mixture on the baking sheet itself, as the sugar will burn a little while cooking).
Pop them in the oven for about 15 minutes. Be careful not to cook them for too long because they will start to burn pretty quick. Once they’ve cooked, let them cool.
Look at the deliciousness! Yum, yum, yum!! Cinnamon and sugar crackers are such a super cheap and delicious treat. You can take them to work with you or send them to school with the kids. They will love you for it, and all their friends will be jealous.
