I love Cheez-It. I love Gold Fish. There are a few food that no matter how I work on making my palate sophisticated. I can’t help but still love a few of those foods that can be found on the convince shelves. Also, cheap maple syrup, I love that stuff, it’s so bad, so good. All that to say, these taste like Cheez -Its. GAHHHHHH. So happy! I also want to play around with making these guys GF. I think it would be super easy to do. Homemade crackers, ok ok ok…
Adapted from Tartine
3/4 wholewheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup chopped medium-fine walnuts
Sift together flour, salt, and pepper. Set aside. In another mixing bowl (or in your mixer), combine the butter and cheese. Mix in the flour mixture, mix to combine. Add the walnuts. You should be able to still chunks of cheese and walnuts. But make sure everything is combined.
Transfer the dough to a sheet of plastic wrap. Roll into a 1″ log. Chill for an hour
Heat the oven to 400.
Cut the cracks into 1/8-1/4 inch thick circles. Place 1″ apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake until golden, about 7-10 minutes. They keep well sealed in a mason jar for 2 weeks.
