Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter cold, cut into small pieces
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  • Pulse the flour, butter, cheese, salt, and pepper together using a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • Pulse in 3 to 4 tablespoons of water, one tablespoon at a time, and only enough so that the dough forms a ball and rides the blade.
  • Remove, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  • Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside.
  • Roll the dough out to 1/8-inch thickness. (If you roll it thicker, it will still work, but the crackers won't be quite as crunchy. This dough rolled out so easily; you'll wish that you always worked with cheddar!)
  • Cut out as many crackers as possible.
  • Place them 1 inch apart on the prepared baking pans.
  • Bake until golden and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes.

Notes

For an Easter variation, use a bunny-shaped cookie cutter to cut out bunnies instead of goldfish.
