Cheddar Crackers

My aunt has been making some delicious cheese crackers and they are on my list to make, but when I came across this recipe I decided to give it a try.  I like cheese, but it does not always like me.  Stella loves anything cheese! This recipe is a little lighter on the cheese and I thought it might be a little better for me and my stomach.  It is not something you can just whip up – you need to do a little planning since the dough has to be refrigerated.

Cheddar Crackers (thank you to



2 cup flour (I did half white and half wheat)
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp dry mustard
3/4 cup organic butter, cold
1/2 cup organic cheddar cheese, grated (raw milk cheddar even better)  I really packed the cup
6 + Tbl cold water

1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a glass bowl.

2. Add the butter and then either with your hands or a fork, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles corn meal.

3. Grated the cheese and then add to the mixture.

4. Add 1 Tbl of water at a time and mix.  I found towards the 5th Tbl it was better to use my hands to mix the dough.

5. Form the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

6. Preheat the oven to 350 and line a cooking sheet with parchment paper.

7. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into a rectangle that is approximately 16×12.  The rolled out dough should be about 1/8″ thick.

8. Cut into 1″ x 3″ pieces and place on the baking sheet, 1 inch apart.

9. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes – you want them to be golden brown and crispy.  Cool completely before serving.

These taste more like a cheesy pie crust cracker – I really liked them!  Stella did not like them, which is fine since I think I could eat these with almost every meal and as a snack! I would roll them out even thinner next time – so they were crunchier and cut them a shorter length.
