School is back in session…..here 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cut out shapes and place on a baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-20 minutes depending on how thick your crackers are.
