DIRECTIONS

  • First, mix together the shredded cheese, half of the salt and the softened butter. (I used sharp aged white cheddar cheese, but you can use whatever kind of cheese you like. I shredded my own cheese just because I think it has better flavor and melts better, but you can use pre-shredded too to save some time!).
  • Add in the flour and mix until the dough looks like little fluffy clumps.
  • Then, with the mixer running begin adding the ice water and mix until a soft dough forms. (use as much ice water as you need for a dough to form).
  • Divide the dough in two, form each into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes.
  • Then, roll the dough out on a floured surface into about an 1/8 inch thickness and using a fluted pastry cutter, cut the dough into about 1 inch squares.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 deg F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Transfer your little crackers onto the parchment paper, make a hole in the center of each with a toothpick, then sprinkle them with the rest of the salt.
  • Bake for about 7 - 10 minutes (baking time will depend on your oven, just watch them carefully so they don't burn!), or until they have puffed up and the edges begin to brown.
  • Let cool before eating. (They are best eaten right away, but you can store them in an airtight container).
