Homemade Cheese Crackers Recipe

December 19, 2016

This cheese crackers recipe yields 1 batch.


  • 1 1/2 Cups Cheddar
  • 4 T. Butter
  • 3/4 Cups All purpose flour
  • 1/4 t. Salt
  • Sprinkle to taste Sea salt


  1. In a food processor, pulse all of the ingredients together until it forms a ball (about 2 minutes).
  2. Place the ball between two pieces of wax paper, and roll it out to about 1/8" thick.
  3. Using a pastry wheel or small cookie cutters, cut into shapes.
  4. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet about 1/2" apart from each other - they puff up a bit. Poke each cracker with a fork or skewer so that they don't puff too much.
  5. Sprinkle with just a pinch of salt
  6. Bake at 350ºF for 8-12 minutes (depending on the size/shape of your crackers), until lightly browned on the edges.
  7. Cool on the baking sheet, and store in an airtight container
