This is a really popular recipe that's gone into 'public domain' on this island and goes really well with a glass of 'cabinet savage' when you're winding down just before dinner. Also it keeps well in an airtight cookie tin or can be well wrapped and frozen for a couple of months.

- 1⁄4 lb cold pack aged cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

Truly outstanding as a cracker! The ground celery seed added a wonderful taste. I can't wait to try this with garlic, chives, curry, the possibilities are endless! BTW, I am not a fan of rolling out dough, so I patted the dough to pretty much the 1/4 inch thickness and then used a schnapps glass to cut out the circles. Worked like a charm!
These are great crackers. Everyone loved them. They were delicate and delicious, and easy to make. Wonderfully easy and tasty recipe.
Wow! We just made a batch of these and they were soooooo good! I used pepper jack cheese, and threw some garlic salt over the top of them before putting them into the oven. Great recipe - my daughter said they remind her of cheese it's! Oh, and it makes the entire smell fabulous!
