Mustard Cheddar Crackers
- Ready In:
- 4hrs 50mins
- A food processor makes this come together in a snap but the dough can be made by hand.
- Blend together until smooth the butter, cheese and egg yolk.
- Add remaining ingredients and pulse until just blended. (If your food processor is small, you may have to do this in batches.). Transfer dough (it will be very soft) to a bowl and chill for 15 minutes.
- Halve dough and on a lightly floured surface, shape each half into a 12-inch log.
- Wrap logs in waxed paper then in foil and chill until firm, at least 4 hours. If you plan to freeze them, now is the time.
- Place oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Unwrap logs and with a sharp, thin knife cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Arrange slices 1-inch apart on baking sheets.
- Bake in batches, switching position of sheets halfway through, baking until golden brown, 12-15 minutes.
- Transfer to racks to cool. Line sheets with clean parchment between batches.
- Crackers, cooled completely, keep in a airtight container at room temp 1 week.

<p>Hello from suburban Fort Worth, Texas! <br /> <br /><br /> <br />______________________________________________ <br /> <br /> <br />*My rating system defined* <br /> <br />Very few recipes really knock my socks off - I love to cook but am not a gourmet. <br />This said: <br /> <br />***** - met all my expectations in taste & appearance; directions were clear & easy to follow. <br /> <br />**** - fell slightly short of my expectations in taste or appearance or directions were faulty or not completely clear. <br /> <br />*** - mediocre taste and/or appearance; most likely a recipe that I would not use again without much modification. <br /> <br />** - taste and/or appearance was not to my liking; a recipe that I would not attempt to modify or use again. <br /> <br />* - taste was absolutely not to my liking (I can't imagine ever using this rating as I can generally tell by the ingredients if I will enjoy the finished product or not) <br /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/chefbanner1.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j44/scmurray51/hagshat.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><br /> </p>
