Homemade Cheddar Crackers

posted by on 09/21/2012 | 110 comments (leave one of your own)

I buy the organic cheddar bunnies for my kids and they are almost more than $4 a box. Dumb.  A box of crackers for my children that will probably last a day should not cost as much as a gallon of gas (or half a bottle of wine).

I decided to make my own crackers, I figured it couldn’t be that hard.  I ran across this recipe and saw that I needed six ingredients, all of which I had and didn’t require a trip to the store.

It turned out that I did not have the onion powder, but I wasn’t running to store to buy it.  My kids have both eaten crayons at one point in their young lives, I’m pretty sure their refined palates will never miss the hint of onion seasoning.

However, one thing I did not have and definitely needed?  A mini cookie cutter.  It makes the crackers extra special in the way that no amount of onion powder ever could.

Most would go with a mini goldfish.

I went with what seemed right.

You can find just about anything on Etsy, believe that.

Put all your ingredients into the food processor and mix it all up.

After you chill the dough, you need to get down to the magic.  The mini squirrel cookie cookie is probably my favorite thing ever.

Also, it helps to have an assistant.

Homemade Cheddar Crackers 

8 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
4 Tablespoons Butter, cut into cubes
1 cup Flour (I used whole wheat because it is what I had)
¾ teaspoons sea salt
2 Tablespoons Cold Water

Directions:

Mix everything (except water) together in the food processor.

Pulse in water 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough resembles sand.

Wrap dough in parchment paper or plastic wrap and chill for 20 minutes.

Roll the dough out 1/8-inch thick and make your daughter cut into squirrel shapes. Place on a lined cookie sheet (I used my Silpat).

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Yields approximately 150 delicious mini one inch homemade crackers.

    Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!
