Ingredients

  • 6 oz or 2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or water

Instructions

  • In a food processor, place the cheese, butter, flour, salt and garlic powder and pulse until chunky.
  • Add in 1 tablespoon of liquid and turn on the food process until a dough ball forms. If ball isn’t forming, add another tablespoon of liquid.
  • Dust a work surface with a little flour. Roll the dough into a ball and then divid it into 4 balls. With your hands roll each ball into a 1/2 inch rope. Wrap the 4 ropes in saran wrap and place in the freeze for 45-60 minutes or until just hard to the touch.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Take out the dough ropes and slice into 1/4 inch slices. Place on baking sheet and press a dot in the middle of each cracker with a wooden skewer or a fork.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes or just golden brown. Let cool completely on the baking sheet, they will continue to crisp up as they cool.

Notes

age: 9+ months 
storage: store in a container on the counter for up to 1 week. I like to leave the container lid cracked so the crackers don't get too soggy.
