Crackers are great to have on hand for a quick afternoon snack topped with a slice of cheese or smoked mussels and an impressive addition to any cheeseboard.

The benefits of baking your own savoury biscuits:

1. You can decide the variety of biscuits to serve on your cheeseboard that will best compliment the cheese and condiments you've chosen, not being limited to what a box of store-bought crackers has to offer.

2. You can freeze the biscuit batters and bake them off as your guests arrive. Serving fresh warm crackers is indeed impressive, not to mention the lovely aromas that will fill your home.

3. If you're short on time, bake a big batch ahead of time to have on hand when needed, which is great for meal prepping your lunch and snacks for the week ahead.

Tip: If you have a herb garden don't forget to pick some fresh herbs and add them to your biscuits for an extra hint of flavour.
