Homemade Cheese Crackers
I have made these several times and each time I have to hold on to my cheese filled hat - if you like Cheez-Its - These knock them out of the water! Salty, Cheesy, Mouth-watering buttery - goodness. Drooling yet? Times like these I wish Smell-o-vision had been invented. Because the aroma in my house is making it VERY hard for me not to eat the THREE batches I made. (the recipe below is only for one batch).
1½ cups (6 oz) grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened and cut into pieces
¾ cup flour, plus more for dusting
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika
1 tablespoon milk
Substitute other cheeses for the cheddar for a different snack every time!

Just made these...I must not have rolled them out thin enough because mine are pretty thick now.... But they are super yummy! Next time I will roll them thinner!

They are so addicting! Glad you like them :) yes, I had to make sure mine were rolled pretty thin - but my thicker ones still tasted good, just not as "crunchy"

Wonderful idea! I've been wondering how to do it...my cockatoo won't go to bed without her "cracker." (Cheezits) You have just made my life a whole lot easier and quieter!!!

I love that you and your daughter made them together! I always love cooking with my mom (and I'm 37)

You can use either. I used smoked because that is what I have on hand. You can also use cayenne or any other flavor that is tantalizing to your taste buds :)

SO good!!!! Though, my kitchen is rather eccentric (don't be fooled, i like to pretend I'm from other countries through my cooking but I'm super white and boring) so I had to make some adjustments. I used wasabi Gouda cheese and since I didn't have paprika I used Greek seasoning with chili powder. So good, though next time I would like to try the real recipe because cheeze-its are simply scrumptious!

OK, Jennifer, now you've done it! As if I didn't have enough baking to do already.... but, seriously, thanks so much! I'll do these tomorrow!!
My FIL just came to live with us and he loves cheese crackers, but the ones in the store are so full of sodium and other junk that I won't buy them for him. I'm glad you posted this. I know that chees is still high in sodium, but at least I know what's in them and I'm sure they're healthier than store bought. Thank you so much for sharing.

Debbie, that is so awesome! That was one of the reasons I just made them today was to send to my FIL. He had just sent us a Trader Joe Care Package so I thought it would be fun to send him his favorite crackers as a Thank you gift. Great minds think alike! I hope your FIL likes them! Blessings, Jennifer

I think I may have rolled mine too thin or didn't use enough flour. :/

I just wanted to add, though. The flavor was good. Tastes just like cheese-its, and most of my kids liked them a lot. : )

Love this recipe! I did not have a food processor so it was hard to make with a mixer but I was able to mush it with my hands to get it to form a ball and to roll out. It’s doable but a lot more work. It tastes exactly like cheez it’z. I’ll be making these for my toddlers from now on!
