What a great snack! Love the cheddar flavor and the black pepper - perfect! I had to cook mine in 2 batches; in the first batch when I rolled the 8" circle my dough was thicker and the crisps were not as crispy (still tasted great tho!). The second batch I just rolled the dough as thin as I could and got wonderfully crispy crackers. Great snack with cocktails out on the deck - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Yummy, yummy, yummy crackers! They have a superb flavour and nice crisp, but not too crisp texture. Im munching on some right now and just cant stop. These are dangerous, Coffee, but great! ;) I made three rounds sprinkled with the black pepper as suggested and then 1 with paprika, 1 with curry powder and 1 with rosemary and parsley, which were also really good! I usually dont like black pepper, but these crackers are different. I luv them! Thanks so much for sharing this winner with us, Coffee! Made and reviewed for Everyday is a Holiday Tag Game May 09.

These are seriously good! I can understand what the other reviewers meant about them - they're so addictive! I'll definately make these again... I loved the decadence of the cheese with the zip of the cracked pepper. Thanks, CoffeeB! Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag.
