Homemade Cheez-Its

Yield: Makes about 15 dozen crackers
Prep 10 mins Chill 1 hr Bake 375°F 15 mins
Homemade Cheez-Its
Ingredients
  • 8  ounces  extra sharp cheddar cheese, coarsely shredded
  • 1/2  stick unsalted butter, at room temperature (4 tablespoons)
  • 1  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 2  tablespoons  ice water
Directions

1. 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.

2. Pat the dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for an hour.

3. 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.

4. 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.
