From Scratch Cheesy Snack Crackers

From Scratch Cheesy Butter Crackers


2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons salt

1/3 cup cold butter

½ cup milk

3 tablespoons olive oil

½ cup shredded cheese or more

1 tablespoon olive oil

sprinkle of salt


Parchment paper

pastry cutter

mixing bowls

basting brush

small cups

cookie sheet


Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper lining.

Sift Flour, baking soda, salt together in a large mixing bowl. Cut in cold butter with a pastry cutter. Add shredded cheese, pulse also with the pastry cutter until pea sized and small. In a small cup mix milk and oil together, then add to the flour mix and create a dough.

Taking a handful at a time, roll out dough with a rolling pin, as thin as possible. And using a small circle cookie cutter, cut out crackers from the dough. I used a 2 inch round.

Here is a picture of that step.

Then you need to take away the excess dough and fork the dough.

Here is a picture of the forking step.

Place unto lined baking sheet and bake a sheet at a time on the second shelf at a preheated 300 degree oven for about 18 minutes, or until golden brown. They will puff up a bit, but not if you stabbed them good enough with the fork.

Makes 100 crackers. (yes so you better have some time.)
