Homemade Spicy Cheese Crackers




  • 1½ cups (6 oz) grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened and cut into pieces
  • ¾ cup (90 g) flour, plus more for dusting
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Preparation:
    1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°.
    2. 2. Put everything except the milk in a food processor. Pulse the processor, 5 seconds at a time, for about 5 or 6 times, until the dough is in coarse crumbs.
    3. 3. Add the milk and process until the dough gathers together in a ball.
    4. 4. Roll the dough out on a floured board with a rolling pin that has been floured until it is about 1/8 inch thick. (Deb suggested an 8×10 rectangle.)
    5. 5. Cut the dough into 1-inch squares with a sharp knife or pizza cutter. You can put a bit of flour on the blade of the knife to keep it from sticking.Use the flat end of a wooden skewer to poke a hole in the center of each cracker.
    6. 6. Place the crackers at least ¼ inch apart on parchment paper on a baking sheet.
    7. 7. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until the edges are just starting to brown. (Mine took 13 minutes.)
    8. 8. Put the baking sheet on a rack and let the crackers cool completely.
