Homemade Cheese Crackers! Only 6 ingredients!


Get your little helpers and make some
Homemade Cheese Crackers!
These are so yummy!
This little guy came out on the patio with me during the photo shoot...
and kept taking crackers as I took pictures!  :)

Here's what you'll need:

Recipe:
4 Tablespoons of butter cut into small pieces
8 ounces of grated cheese
1 1/4 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon of smoked paprika

2-4 Tablespoons of ice water
(the less water the better...but we needed all 4)

Put all the ingredients except the water into your mixing bowl.
(we used the kitchenaid...food processor would be ideal)

Blend until all mixed.
Then add 1 T of ice water and blend.
Add another...blend, you get it.
Until it makes clumps.

Pour out onto lightly floured surface
knead into ball

Cover with cling wrap.

put in fridge for 30 minutes.
Then take 1/2 of the dough and roll it out about 1/4" to 1/8" thick

We used a pizza cutter to just cut it all up into uneven squares...
but you could use a cookie cutter at this point.

place on cookie sheet...I lightly misted ours with cooking
spray just in case...separate the pieces.

Then bake in the oven, 375* for 7-9 minutes.
We went with the 9.
They should puff up and get a slight tan on the edges.

Let them cool.  They smell so good!
Try not to inhale them.

Repeat with the other half of the dough!

These are kid and husband approved!
My husband didn't even get to try one, the kids gobbled them up so fast!
Well, time to make some more!!!  :)


Linking up to THESE parties this week!
