    I had fun making these, and they tasted great too. I sprinkled with salt on top just before baking.  -  11 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love this recipe! I had to add an extra tablespoon and a half of water, but that has more to do with the air than the recipe. I used a pizza cutter to make square goldfish. It saves a lot of time and they are a great size for my toddler!  -  26 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
