Spicy Cheddar Cheese Crackers

Author Notes: I'm a sucker for cheese crackers. Especially with a little heat. I had to re-create a version of my own when I was road tripping home to Cleveland this past Christmas. Good for dipping, or snacking!Brussels Sprouts for Breakfast

In This Recipe


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl or standing mixer, and add butter so you have a crumbly dough. Create a well in the middle and add the wet ingredients, including the cheese. Fold the mixture together until a thick dough has formed.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. With your hands, scoop out small chunks of the dough, roll into a ball, and flatten into a little cracker shape. Place on the parchment paper. Pop the crackers into the oven for about 35 minutes. Keep watching them to make sure they don't burn!
