Whole Wheat Cheddar Crackers
Makes approx 8-9 dozen (depending on the size)
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup whole wheat flour, plus 1-2 tbsp for rolling
4 tbsp unsalted cold butter, cut into cubes
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp cold water
1. In a food processor combine all ingredients except the water. Pulse until the mixture resembles course sand. Add in the water and continue to process until a dough ball forms. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly sprinkle flour over a hard surface and roll out dough until about 1/4 inch thick. Cut dough into crackers with a knife or cookie cutters and place on a baking sheet*.
3. Bake for about 13-18 minutes, removing from oven as soon as the crackers begin to brown. Allow to cool and enjoy!
*My crackers were puffy and a little on the chewy side, they still taste good, but if you want a crisper cracker, you may want to prick the the crackers with a toothpick a few times before baking.
