Banana Crackers...

 Made these little Banana Crackers yesterday and it was really simple and two out of the three kids liked them a lot!

 Banana Crackers
      2 c  All-purpose flour
    1/4 ts Salt
    1/8 ts Baking soda
      6 tb butter or margarine, softened
   2/3 c  Mashed banana (1 large)
      2 tb Honey
      2 tb Warm water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl; cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the banana and blend well. In a separate bowl, dissolve the honey in the warm water. Slowly add the honey/water to the flour/banana mixture and blend to form a dough that will hold together in a ball. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions and roll the dough thinly. 
Cut into circles using a cookie cutter. 
Arrange crackers on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Prick each cracker in 2 or 3 places with the tines of a fork.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning over once during baking. 
These crackers should be medium brown.Cool on a rack.
