Homemade Cheese Crackers are the favorite for kids and adults alike. No need for store bought ever again!
In the cracker aisle of the grocery store, you can take your pick of cheese crackers in so many different flavors, shapes and sizes. With all the different choices, I often wondered why anyone would bother to make homemade cheese crackers since they could easily be bought at the store. Since I’m a curious person, naturally I had to try making my own crackers. I totally get it now.
I could tell you about the crispy cheese on the edges of these crackers and even brag about how they’re the best cheese crackers ever, but would you believe me even though you can’t reach out and taste one for yourself? The only way you’ll know these are worth making is to try this in your very own kitchen.
Butter makes a flaky, rich cracker that is firm enough for dipping. The cheese melts in the oven, works its savory magic, and makes crispy edges. Don’t you love crispy cheese? I sure do! Garlic and onion give a very well rounded flavor to these homemade crackers. No dip needed in my opinion - it's a little bit like gilding the lily.
I like using my ravioli cutter when I make crackers, but when you try this recipe, you can use a pizza cutter or even a knife. I like mine with jagged edges and each one just a little different. At my house, our favorite cheese is cheddar, so I usually make my homemade cheese crackers with what we have, but you can use your favorite cheese for your own awesome crackers. Are you ready to give it a try?
Remember to keep ice water at the ready to pull your dough together. It's key, because the dough is a lot like pie crust in its form. Don't let that scare ya though - putting this recipe together really made me wonder why we ever buy crackers. Homemade ones are the best ever!
