Description

Your favorite fish cracker made at home – and it is SUPER easy.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, weight Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Cut Into Cubes
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Cold Water

Preparation

Pulse everything (except water) together in the food processor until the dough resembles coarse sand.

Pulse in water, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Remove dough from the processor, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes.

Roll out the dough and cut into desired shapes. You can use a toothpick to make the eyes and smile if desired. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or until crispy.

Makes approximately 7 dozen crackers.

Just thought I would pass along a tip. I make this often and these days instead of running the risk of burning them I take them out and throw them in my dehydrator to really crisp them up. It works great. This has become a family favorite!!! Thanks for sharing it!

Would love to make these! Just wondering , do you use regular all purpose flour or self rising? Thanks!

Soooo yummmy!!! Better than store bought! I used the extra sharp cheddar from the gourmet cheese case and it was loaded with cheesy flavor. The goldfish shape got tedious after a while so next time I’ll make them as Cheez Its, but thanks for a great recipe!

The minute I saw this recipe I knew that it was similar to one I had many years ago that I had lost – so I tried them out today all that I added was a packet of crushed potato chips (what ever flavor you want ) – oh they came out great thanks for sharing this recipe – now I can make my ” chip biscuit “again

I made these for a lunch with one of my friends that has a large family. Everyone loved them from the biggest to the littlest. Simple to make and I ended up making it easier for myself by just doing little circle cutouts.

The ones I didn’t burn were SO GOOD! I might try sprinkling them with white cheddar powder next time too.
