Now that I'm home full-time, I like to make all kinds of breads for meals, family gatherings and just for fun with my daughters, Lindsay and Mariah. Both girls love to help when it comes to making bread, especially kneading the dough. This is one of their favorite recipes.

"This crowd-pleasing snack has been a tremendous hit both at home and at work," reports Billie Sue Ebinger from Holton, Indiana. The fun crunchy bites have a sweet cinnamon-toast taste and just a hint of saltiness that make them very munchable.
