Yes these are crackers full of cheese and yes they are fattening, which is why you don’t make too many of these and eat them all at once. I made that mistake, you don’t have to.. but if you don’t then you’ve not lived.
These are crackery, as in crispy and have faint hits of paprika and cheesy.. yes cheesy. The worst part is that they’re all too easy to make and sinfully addictive.
1 cup flour
4 tbsp cold butter
150 gms grated cheddar cheese
75 gms cold cream cheese
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp baking powder
3-4 tbsp cold water.
In a processor mix all these ingredients until they’re just about to clump. In case you don’t have a processor just cut the cheeses and the butter into the flour mixture much like you do while making a pastry, you can use a pastry cutter, fork or your finger tips. Once the flour mixture resembles a coarse oat meal mixture, combine using water forming into a rough ball.
Wrap in plastic and chill in the fridge for about 25 minutes.
Once its slightly cooler roll it out to about 1/8th of an inch and cut into any shapes you want.
I was lazy, so I just took a knife and scale and made 2cm X 4cm rectangles.
Make a hole in the middle of your crackers before baking.
Bake at 180℃ for 12-15 minutes.
Let cool before popping one in your mouth..
You can eat these just as they are, or with your favorite dips, drinks.. etc etc..
Feast ye eyes on another picture..
