My first attempt at crackers. My cayenne says extra hot on it and I should have thought about that and adjusted the amount as they were very spicy. And my husband said he couldn't tell there was cheese in them at all. I could sense a hint of cheese but definately needs more cheese flavor. Mine were triangles as I didn't have a star cutter. Thanks!

My first attempt at crackers! They were pretty easy - though they were more like squares (or some of them, blobs) since I don't have a star cookie cutter. I love the cayenne! I think I might use a bit of salt next time. I used sharp cheddar, but this recipe could take a stronger flavored cheese, so I will experiment with other types. I'll also try spreading the sesame seeds on top of the rolled dough before cutting, since pressing all those little crackers in seeds was a little tedious (of course it didn't help that I was in a hurry at the time). Thanks for posting!
