Description

Perfect for a weekend snack. Or as an escort to a good Cabernet.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick Butter, Softened
  • 1-½ ounce, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ¼ cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Sun-dried Tomatoes In Oil, Patted Dry And Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Crushed Dried Basil
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder, Or To Taste
  • ½ teaspoons Salt, Or To Taste
  • 1 cup Flour

Preparation

In a mixing bowl, cream together all of the ingredients except the flour. Stir in flour with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms. Shape dough into a flattened disk; wrap and refrigerate for 1-1/2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350F. After it’s well chilled, set out dough to soften slightly. Roll out until it’s about 1/4″ thick on a lightly floured surface and cut into cracker shapes. (I used a fish-shaped cookie cutter to simulate “gourmet” goldfish. ‘Twas a gift from my sister. I love fish. I love my sister.)

Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely.

Recipe adapted from Ann Clark Ltd., The Cookie Cutter People From Vermont.

NOTE: These crackers are softer and flakier and tend to break easily when cut into large fish shapes. Use funky cookie cutters at your own risk.
