Homemade Cheese Crackers

Author divas can cook


  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • course kosher salt for sprinkling optional


  • Add all ingredients, except kosher salt into a food processor.
  • Process until a dough forms.
  • Shape dough into a disk and wrap with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour (I cheated and did 30 minutes)
  • Remove dough from fridge and let it soften.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Roll the dough out on a smooth surface until it is about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Use a pizza cutter or pastry wheel and make 1-inch squares.
  • Sprinkle dough with kosher salt if desired.
  • Use the end of a wooden skewer to make holes in the center of each square.
  • Place the squares on a cookie sheet lined with non-stick foil or parchment paper.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until bottoms are barely golden.
  • Let crackers sit in the pan for a minute before removing to a cooling rack. Crackers will crisp up more as they cool so be sure not to over bake.
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Enjoy!
