The other day, I was
drooling over checking out Foodgawker and when I saw these, I just could not get over them. I don’t know if it ever happens to you… you know, when you see something that you “just have to make”, right then and there! Well, I was lucky enough to have all the ingredients in my pantry, so I immediately got up and made them. I was so happy with the result that I made them again the next day for my husband to take to work… just to share the happiness. They are really easy to make and they taste yummy! The best thing is that they are made with whole wheat flour, so they are (partially) good for you. They are a great snack and would be perfect with a glass of white wine for aperitivo. Enjoy!
Recipe adapted from Texanerin
170 gms – 1 ½ cups cheddar, grated
57 gms – 4 tbsp butter
95 gms – ¾ cup whole wheat flour
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp salt
Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until well combined. Take the dough out of the food processor, make it into a ball, cover it in cling wrap and put it in the fridge for half an hour.
Now roll it into a 3 mm – 1/8 inch thick sheet and cut out whatever shapes you like. I used my pasta cutter and made 2.5 cm – 1 inch squares. Make a little hole in the middle with a skewer to prevent them from puffing up in the oven. Put them on a baking tray covered with baking paper and bake them in a pre heated oven at 175°C – 350°F. Make sure you leave a little space in between the crackers as they will grow a bit in the oven. Bake them for about 8 to 12 minutes or until they start turning brown at the edges. I baked mine around 12 minutes as I like them crunchier.
