Author: Marlynn Schotland, Urban Bliss Life


  • 1.5 Sharp cheddar cheese coarsely grated
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt plus more for sprinkling on before baking


  • Put all four ingredients into a food processor and mix until ingredients form a ball, which takes about two minutes.
  • Divide the ball into two disks, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Take dough out and place between two Silpats, Rolpats, or sheets of parchment paper. Roll the dough until it's about 1/8" flat. Remove top parchment paper/Silpat.
  • Using a pastry wheel to get the cute scalloped edges (or you can use a pizza cutter for straight edges), cut dough into 1" squares.
  • Place dough on the Silpat/Rolpat/parchment paper into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to help chill the dough, which makes it easier to lift individual pieces out for baking.
  • After 10 minutes, remove from the refrigerator and place individual crackers about 1/2" apart from each other on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or onto a Silpat.
  • Bake for about 8-10 minutes.
