After School Snack... Homemade Whole Wheat Goldfish Crackers

School is back in session… is a fun treat for the kidos when they get home today!


  • 1 cup – flour, whole wheat
  • 1/2 teaspoon – salt
  • 4 tablespoon – butter, unsalted
  • 1 cup – cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoon – water


  1. Add the flour and salt to a food processor and pulse. Then add butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add grated cheese a little at a time and pulse.
  2. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough forms into a ball. Continue pulsing between tablespoons – this could take a minute. You can also feel the dough and if it shapes into a ball, it is ready.
  3. Flatten between two pieces of wax or freezer paper, and chill for 10-20 minutes. This helps the butter get cold and makes for a puffier cracker.
  4. Roll the dough fairly thin. About 1/8 of an inch is a good thickness. More thin = crispier, but you don’t want it paper thin.
  5. Cut out shapes and place on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-20 minutes depending on how thick your crackers are.
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
