Homemade Cheese Crackers
Have you noticed that most moms carry
goldfish those cheesy crackers around in their bags?
at the park
at the market
I know that compared to a lot of snack items, they are pretty harmless.
I’ve never really been a fan.
Those colors just don’t seem “natural”
I feel the same about boxed mac and cheese
but kids love them
and I aim to please
Today I made cheese crackers.
They were very simple to make
and the kids went crazy for them
I do believe I have conquered my fear of the lunch box.
for the crackers:
2 cups of whole wheat flour
6 ounces of sharp white cheddar (you could use yellow) grated
3/4 cup of milk
2 tbsp of butter
2 tsp of sea salt
in the bowl of a food processor combine the flour and salt
add the cheese and pulse until well combined
add the butter – pulse until you have a course meal
while pulsing gradually add the milk
this will form the dough
roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness (on a well floured surface)
cut into squares (I did owls as well)
bake on an un-greased sheet @ 425 for 8 minutes
even better than those other crackers
