Goldfish Crackers Made From Scratch
Are goldfish crackers something that I could easily make myself using a cheddar of my choosing? YES!
Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time45 mins
Servings: 8 servings
- 1 C all-purpose flour
- 4 T cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces
- 8 oz cheddar cheese This is the fun part! Pick out whatever type of cheddar that you like! I used orange cheddar for half of the fish, as shown above, and white cheddar for the other half, as shown below. Both cheddars that I used were extra sharp because that's how I like it!
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 t fresh-ground pepper
- A fish cookie cutter. I got mine from CopperGifts.
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.
Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper 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 at 350 F until golden and crisp - 15 to 20 minutes.
