What kid doesn’t love those cheesy crackers in the shape of a fish? Well my daughter does, and well I am just tired of buying them. For two reasons; the first well they are never on sale anymore and when they are it’s still not a deal 😦 and second I can’t even pronounced some of the ingredients that are in these crackers.
So I came across this recipe and it’s pretty easy (also I had all the ingredients) and it kept my daughter very busy for about 2 hrs. (she had to use every single tiny scrap of dough)
This is what you need:
1 1/2 cups sharp white Cheddar, grated
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
3 to 4 tbsp milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the Cheddar, flours, paprika, onion powder and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and pulse until coarse crumbs form. Add the milk and pulse until the dough forms into a ball.
Form the dough into 1 disk. Cover in and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Roll the dough out 1/8-inch thick on a lightly-floured surface using a lightly-floured rolling pin. Form shapes with a mini cookie cutter, dipping it in flour from time to time to ensure a clean cut. Gently transfer the crackers to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake the crackers on the middle rack of the oven until they are barely browned at the edges, about 8 minutes.
Remove from the oven and set onto a rack to cool.
