This is my favorite snack .. i love cheese crackers !! They’re so easy to make , within 5 minutes you’re done and just let it sit in the fridge for an hour , and you’ll get yourself some yummy snack . They are so addicting because you wouldn’t be able to stop with just 1 or 2 . If you’d like , you can always add in chopped thyme in there , Although i grow them in my backyard , for these crackers , i prefer to skip them . Just make it simple crackers . In a way it also reminds me of the dutch cheese cookies called kaastengel . Though i think this tastes better than kaastengel !!! Try it !
1 stick of unsalted butter , room temperature
1 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese ( choose a good brand for this )
3/4 tsp. of kosher salt
1/2 tsp of fresh ground black pepper
1 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
1. In a large mixing bowl , beat the butter until creamy for a minute , high speed . Then add the parmesan cheese and beat until combined . Add the salt and pepper , then finally add the all purpose flour .
2. If the dough is too dry , add 1 tsp. of water and it should come together just fine .
3. Roll the dough into a 9 inches log and wrap it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least an hour .
After chilling in the fridge for an hour , preheat your oven to 350 F . Unwrap the cheese log and start slicing the crackers into 1/4 inch of thickness .
Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet , and bake for 22 minutes , turn half way .
Remove from the oven once they’re golden brown . Cool and serve , you can store this in an air tight container for few days too .
