Whole Wheat Cheese Crackers

These are directly from the 100 Days of Real Food blog. She really has a lot of great, healthy, yummy recipes on her blog. You should check it out!! Next time, I'll make these a bit thinner to stretch the recipe a bit more. At the thickness I made, this made 26 crackers.

Whole Wheat Cheese Crackers
1 cup whole-wheat flour
5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into tablespoon size chunks
4 oz. or 1.5 cups grated cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Combine all three ingredients in a food processor and blend. The mixture will eventually turn into one big ball chasing itself around the bowl. Be patient because it can take a few minutes.

3. Roll the ball into a log about 1 ½” in diameter. At this point you could refrigerate the dough until later.

4. With a sharp knife slice ¼” thick pieces off the log (pictured above) and place each one flat on an ungreased baking sheet. Try to rotate which side you are cutting down on because the top of the log does start to flatten a little. It is like your very own homemade slice and bake!

5. If you want, you can take a fork and gently mash down the top of each one before baking.

6. Bake for 8 – 14 minutes or until golden brown. The thicker the crackers the longer it will take.
