I know what your thinking, homemade crackers are hard. Trust me, all it takes is a few healthy ingredients, some delicious sharp Canadian Cheddar and a little spice mix and you’ll be the talk of the next charcuterie night.
This recipe uses extra old cheddar cheese, which provides that sharp taste, and pairs perfectly with the flavour punch of the everything & more seasoning. These homemade whole wheat cheddar cheese crackers are truly appetizer-worthy.
Whole Wheat Cheddar Cheese Crackers
1 cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup cold butter, unsalted, cubed
2 cups Armstrong Extra Old Cheddar Cheese, shredded fine
3-4 tbs cold water
1 tbs wheat germ
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp ground white pepper
Pulse the butter, flour, wheat germ, onion powder, garlic salt, white pepper, and baking powder together using a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
Add the cheese, and 3 to 4 tablespoons of water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and only enough so that the dough forms a ball. Remove, wrap in plastic, and chill for 30 minutes.
Working with half of the dough at a time. Roll out the dough on parchment paper to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut the crackers into desired size using a pastry cutter or sharp knife. Using a fork, prick holes in the dough. This will help the crackers stay flat when baking.
Sprinkle crackers with everything & more seasoning.
Heat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Place crackers on prepared baking pans. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
Store in an airtight container to preserve crispiness.
