Ingredients  

  • 1 ½ cups high quality sharp cheddar, grated
  • 4 TB cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • tsp kosher salt, plus a bit more for garnish, if desired

Instructions

  • In a food processor, process all ingredients until dough comes together. It should feel like play-dough.
  • Shape into 2 separate disks, wrap in plastic, and chill for 30 minutes or longer in the fridge.
  • Place a dough disk between 2 pieces of wax or parchment paper and roll dough out to a rectangle 1/8 in thick.
  • Using a long sharp knife, cut the dough into 1-in squares. Use a toothpick or lollipop stick to punch a hold into the centers of squares. Sprinkle a bit of kosher salt on top.
  • Return cut dough on paper to fridge to chill for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oven to 350F, with rack on middle lower position.
  • Transfer crackers to parchment lined baking sheet, with 1/2 inch between each cracker. Bake 14-15 minutes or until crackers are puffed up, golden and crispy.

Notes

  • Tap crackers gently in oven to check for crispness. If needed, bake an additional minute.
