- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the cheese, butter, and salt. Add the flour and mix on low (dough will be pebbly). Slowly add the water and mix as the dough forms a ball.
- Pat the dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide the dough into two pieces and roll each into a very thin (1/8 inch or less) 10x12 inch rectangle. Using a fluted pastry cutter, cut the rectangles into 1-inch squares, then transfer them to the baking sheets.
- Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until puffed and browning at the edges. Watch carefully, as the high fat content of the crackers makes a fine line between golden delicious and burnt. Immediately move the crackers to racks to cool.

i think i either rolled my dough too thick or didnt cook long enough. Mine didnt get crispy, instead maintained a cheesy bread texture

Anyone know how long these will keep for ? Sealed container in the pantry enough, or do you think fridge?
