Homemade crackers

These are my new obsession. Easy, delicious and real crowd pleaser. Problem is, you can't eat just one, They are more addicting than potato chips!

I originally saw some cheddar cheese crackers on Tastespotting. However referred to my trusty bible, The Tartine Cookbook for her recipe.



3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne
3/4 tsp. black pepper
2 1/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup unsalted butter
(I omitted the walnuts)


In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, salt, cayenne & black pepper. In the bowl of a mixer, combine the cheese and butter and eat on med speed until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat on low. Scrape sides of bowl with rubber spatula.

Transfer dough to parchement paper and shape into a 1" diameter log. Wrap well and freeze about 2 hours ( I doubled the recipe and have more for a later date).

Preheat oven to 400*. Line baking sheets with parchment.

Cut logs into 1/8" thick rounds. Place on baking sheets.

Bake 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
