Piedmont Driving Club’s Buttered Saltines
1/2 pound unsalted butter
48 square Nabisco saltine crackers
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Have a rimmed baking sheet ready.
In a small saucepan, make clarified butter. Melt butter and skim off white foam. Boil butter and keep skimming until the butter is clear and golden. This should yield 3/4 cup clarified butter.
In a large bowl, combine crackers with clarified butter. Toss gently to coat crackers. Transfer crackers to prepared baking sheet, laying crackers flat side by side. Bake 3 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Makes: 48 crackers
