Goldfish Crackers or lets say Cheese crackers...

Crunchy, cheesy, salty, total perfectness in every bite is what I can say about these crackers. It spells sharp cheese in every bite and if you are a cheese lover like me or the kid or the huss, then you definitely have to make this. And when you are attempting this, you are very much making the famous gold fish crackers minus the preservatives at home. I gave this a shot because pappu is very much into Cheetos these days thanks to me. I wanted to try a healthy alternative at home and google search led me to this. If you are very much into perfection unlike me then try making the goldfish cutter at home or stick to an icing tip just like I did. Thats absolutely fine with me when it gets the job done.

The crackers were a total winner both with the huss and pappu. The huss keeps stealing his way to grab a mouthful while pappu runs whenever he hears the cupboard door being shut and gobbles atleast 4 or 5 at a time. Like anytime I halved the recipe and the cracker bin is almost done. This weekend is going to be cracker making week again and I am so going to double the original recipe. Coming to the baking time, keep an eye throughout, cos it tends to go from golden to brown in a minute. One basic rule though is that the thinner you roll out the dough, the crunchier the cracker comes out and the lesser the baking time. Keep that in mind and you are good to go.


Adapted from Tastykitchen
Prep Time 15 Mins; Cooking time: 15 mins; Makes - 2 1/2 cups

~*What U Need*~
Sharp cheddar cheese - 4 ounces, shredded (~2 cups)
Cold Butter- 1 tbsp
Unbleached all purpose flour - 1/2 cfup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Cold water - 1 1/2 tbsp

How I Made it:
Pulse cheese, flour, salt and cold butter together in a food processor until it resembles wet sand. Add water 1/2 tbsp at a time and pulse till it comes together. Gather to a dough and chill for 20 mins.

Roll out the dough and cut desired shapes. I used the back of a icing tip. Place in a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 F for 12-14 mins or until crispy, puffed and golden.

Store in an air tight container upto 2 weeks...

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
