Homemade Cheese Crackers

Very important notes

  • I have used Food processor to combine the dough, but you can combine it with hands too.
  • Use cold butter to get the flaky crackers. I have used unsalted butter, if you are using salted butter, don’t add extra salt.
  • I have used Colby Jack cheese. You may use any cheese of your choice.
  • Place the dough for at least 30 minutes before rolling.
  • Roll thinly (Not too Thinly) about 1/8 of an inch(thickness of a cheese slice)
  • Baking time may vary depending on thickness of crackers and oven temperature.
  • This freezes very well. If you want to freeze these, Don’t bake them. Either freeze the ball of the dough or form crackers, put in the freezer on a sheet in a single layer and once frozen through, place unbaked crackers in a zip lock.
  • You can double or triple the recipe. 
  • You want each element to be cold and keep them cold by chilling and resting the dough.
  • Don’t add too much water. The very least amount possible will perform the best.
  • Please don’t over work your dough.

    This looks so easy – we buy things from supermarket thinking we ease our work – but making it ourselves is so satisfying :) nice Dhwani
