I've been trying to think of some kind of easy to make snack foods that would cover my savory crunch wants. I've been trying to think of cracker type breads to make. Today I did a cracker search and came up with with a recipe for Cheddar Crackers. I followed the recipe to the T, but unfortunately my dough didn't stick together it was all crumbly so I started adding milk, I'd say about 4 tablespoons of milk to make it stick.
I made a quarter of the cracker dough by rolling out with my rolling pin on a floured board and then put on my cookie sheet and baked at 400 for 8 mins before I started to worry about the cheese burning and the smaller crackers getting overly brown.
I sprayed them with butter flavored cooking spray and sprinkled some salt on them.
Everyone loved them. I will be finishing them off for supper with our chicken/ham cheese spread to use up the leftover ham we got from Shea's folks Easter dinner. Should be a good dinner.
Here's my modified recipe for Cheddar Crackers.
1/2 c Butter Or Margarine
1 1/2 c Flour
1/2 t Salt
1 t Baking Powder
1 dash Cayenne Pepper
2 c Grated Cheddar Cheese
4 T Milk
Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder and cayenne pepper) together. Cut in the butter until cornmeal texture. Add in Cheddar Cheese. Add milk slowly until dough forms sticks together. Roll into a log and put in the freezer. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. When preheat is done, roll the dough thin and bake for approximately 8 minutes.
For those curious the Chicken/Ham Spread is as follows, there really is no amounts.
Boil a few eggs. We typically do 4 to 6 eggs. Cook the chicken and/or ham if it is not already cooked. Grate some cheese (or used the store bought grated cheese). Put the chicken ham and eggs into the food processor. Grind until small, not a puree, but chopped pretty finely. Add the cheese. Add mustard to taste and enough mayo to form a spread. Add spices and seasoning to taste. We like to add dill. Mix throughly.
Great with Ritz Crackers and as a Sandwich.
