Spicy Cheese Crackers

Spicy Cheese Crackers 

This spicy cheese cracker recipe was a BIG hit with my clan.  Cheesy, spicy, salty and crunchy!  If you have never made your own cheese crackers, please give this one a try.  If you are making this for the kids just leave out the red pepper flakes.  This recipe is quick to come together in the food processor.  Which means very little clean up.


Shred the cheese in your food processor.  Add the butter, flour, salt, red pepper flakes and garlic and pulse until you achieve a coarse crumb.


Add the milk until it forms a ball.


Roll out the dough until it’s about 1/8″ thick.


Cut into 1″ squares.  I used a pizza cutter.  Please don’t judge me on the straight lines.  I have never been able to cut or draw a straight line.


Place the cheese crackers on a baking sheet and bake.

    I would never thought of making my own cheese crackers! They look good. I wonder if they’d work with vegan cheese :-). I may have to try and let you know. Thanks for sharing at the Blogger’s Pit Stop.
