Delicious crackers but WAY too salty. I did not have pepitas so I doubled the sunflower seeds. I probably used about 3/4 tsp salt in the dough and just sprinkled salt on top so much less than the 2 tsp total the recipe called for. Will reduce to scant 1/2 tsp in dough and quick sprinkle on top. Took about 25 minutes to cook completely. I rolled out between parchment then sprinkled seeds. Tried to press in but they still fell off badly after cooking. Will press in better next time. I used a silicone spoon to mix and it worked well. I also cut the dough into squares with a pizza cutter (on the parchment paper) before baking. Would have been a mess to break afterwards. So with these changes it was quick, easy and yummy. Can see changing up the seed mixtures to get different flavors. Loved the bit of cumin in this mix.
