It's still cold here where we live, so that means we've been busy baking! I just discovered this recipe for homemade "goldfish" crackers, and let me tell ya, they were pretty darn easy! The recipe was
adapted from ReadyMade magazine and is such a fun cooking project to do with kids on a cold and windy day like today. There are only five ingredients with very little prep. The cutting takes a
little more time but my son really gets into cutting out all the shapes. We used itty bitty
cookie cutters, but things like icing tips work great too! If time is not on yourside, you can use a pizza cutter to cut the rolled dough into tiny bite size squares. The crackers are cheesy and puff up to a nice, chewy niblet.
8 ounces, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
4 Tablespoons Butter, Cut Into Cubes
1 cup Flour (I used whole wheat)
¾ teaspoons sea Salt
2 Tablespoons (may need more)Cold Water
Pulse everything (except water) together in the food processor until the dough resembles coarse sand.
Pulse in water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
Remove dough from the processor, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes.
Roll out the dough and cut into desired shapes.
Place on a parchment paper or slipmat lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or until crispy.
Makes approximately 7 dozen crackers.
