Baked Cheese crackers
  • 2 Cup flour 300gr.
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp butter 90gr.
  • 2/3 Cup water 150ml.
  • 6 oz. extra sharp Cheddar cheese 180gr.
  1. Preheat the oven at 350F/175C
  2. In a food processor add flour, salt, butter and the grated cheese. I used sharp Cheddar cheese but you can also use Gouda or Edamer cheese
  3. Let the food processor work and slowly add the water, 1 tablespoon at the time
  4. In less than 5 minutes you will obtain a nice compact dough
  5. Wrap in plastic paper and refrigerate for 1 hour
  6. Place the dough in between two foils of parchment paper. You might want to cut the dough in 3/4 pieces if you do not have a big working station. Roll the dough with a rolling pin in order to obtain a thin 1/8 inch layer
  7. Using a small cookie cutter (I used the small ones for fondant) cut out the shapes that you like.
  8. Place the small crackers on a parchment paper or silky mat on a baking sheet, one next to the other, leaving some space in between.
  9. Using a toothpick poke some holes in each cracker. This is a very important phase not to get the crackers doughy but fluffy and light instead.
  10. Bake the crackers for 20 minutes until lightly golden and crispy
  11. Check at 15 minutes, every oven is different!!
  12. Let cool on baking sheet, they will keep crisping up while cooling down
