It is so nice to have a little something on hand that you can quickly bake up for guests. These crackers are exactly that and they are rich enough to just be a perfect nosh with a glass of wine. Children love them! They keep very well in the freezer - so make and freeze them when you have a little time on your hands and use them when you don’t.
The quality and “bite” of the Cheddar that you use is important. I am using Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar. Make sure that your butter is chilled and that you grate the cheese finely. These are 2 important points that will have an impact on the texture of the cracker. Feel free to try other cheeses as well….Asiago and Parmesan both work well.
