Biscuits, Water

Thin neutral-tasting biscuits consisting simply of flour and water. Ideal with cheese. They were originally a way of improving 'ship's biscuits', by largely replacing the traditional fat with water. This made them more pleasant for long journeys to hot countries. In many ways similar to a matzo.
