Easy Cheesy Crackers

Easy Cheesy Crackers

  • Author: Theresa


If you have an hour, you have time to make these cheesy little crackers from scratch! A perfect starter for any party.


Units Scale

3 cups smoked cheddar cheese
1 cup parmesan/romano cheese or another smoked cheese
1 stick unsalted butter – softened
1 1/3 c. unbleached white flour
1 Tbsp. thyme
1 tsp. ground pepper
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. salt (more or less to taste)
23 Tbsp. water


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Add cheese and butter to a food processor – blend just a bit until crumbly and starting to hold a bit.

Next add your spices and flour, again just pulse until mixed. The dough will look like crumbs still, not a quite a ball.

When ready, the dough will hold together easily when squeezed.

Place the dough onto a rolling board and squeeze into a ball, then separating it into sections.

On a piece of parchment paper, roll each section into a circle about 1/8″-1/4″. We used mini Christmas cookie cutters and they were the perfect party size!

Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on them as the thickness of the cracker can determine the time baked.


Making crackers is almost how we make pastry crust – don’t over-mix your dough or the crackers will be rubbery.
