            -Dottie Cross TMPJ72B
      24    Saltine crackers
            -Ice water
       4 tb Butter, melted
            Poppy seeds, sesame seeds,
            Or coarse (kosher) salt,
            -for topping
  
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In one or more shallow pans of ice water,
   float a single layer of saltines until softened but not disintegrated,
   about 20 minutes. Remove with a slotted spatula, letting excess water drain
   off, and arrange in a single layer about 1-1/2 inches apart on greased
   baking sheets.
      Generously brush tops of crackers with melted butter, taking care not to
   press down. Top with a sprinkling of seeds or salt.
      Bake until crackers are puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
   
   Serve warm, or let cool on a wire rack and store airtight. If made in
   advance, reheat 3 minutes in a
       400    degree oven until crisp.
