These little crackers taste so much like Cheez-It crackers – that even I was impressed.  My husband said, “these are so addicting.” =)

Try adding different types of cheese.  Swiss would be good.  Oh my!  Try adding a pinch of Chipotle Chile Pepper.

The possibilities are endless.

Cheese Crackers

  • 8 oz, weight sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup whole wheat all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 Tablespoons cold water

Pulse everything (except water) together in food processor or until dough resembles coarse sand.

Pulse in water, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Remove dough and wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes.

Roll out dough into desired shapes and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake @ 350F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until crispy
