I love making Homemade Crackers. I’ve tried several recipes before but this recipe is a real winner. My daughter shared this  recipe for homemade goldfish crackers over a year ago. She is very good about cooking from scratch and making sure she knows exactly what her children are eating. These crackers are perfect for snacking or enjoying with a glass of wine. No matter how you enjoy them I can guarantee they won’t last long! They also are easy to make and you can whip up a batch in no time.Homemade Cheese Crackers Now I don’t have a little fish cookie cutter so instead used a little heart cookie cutter to make my crackers. The heart cookie cutter worked out perfectly. They are delicious and store well if they don’t get eaten quickly! You could also use a small round cookie cutter or any other small shape would work.Homemade Cheese Crackers

Homemade Cheese Crackers

2 cups finely grated sharp cheddar cheese.
¾ cups whole wheat pasty flour (worked fine with just whole wheat flour)
¼ tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp salt
2 Tbsp light flavored oil

In a food processor blend everything but the oil together. When the ingredients are well blended add the oil and blend until the mixture becomes crumbly. Place the dough in a large bowl and knead into a ball. If it is too dry you can add an extra Tbsp of oil

Roll the dough to ¼ inch thickness and cut with your cookie cutter. I found it worked really well to just roll out a small portion of dough at a time.Homemade Cheese Crackers

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes.Homemade Cheese CrackersLet cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container. I imagine these would freeze well but they were consumed so quickly I didn’t have a chance to find out!Homemade Cheese Crackers Enjoy!Homemade Cheese Crackers

Hi Nancy,
Yum ~ these look good. Approximately how many crackers did you get (using your small heart-shape cutter)?
I don’t have a food processor, but do have a Kitchen Aid mixer. Think I could use my Kitchen Aid instead of a food processor?

Any bites on your house yet? Selling a home is not fun. I know first-hand how hard it is to keep it nice and organized and clean every day just in case a Realtor calls for a showing. Ugh, I was about ready to give up but finally started getting calls. Then I was about ready to throw in the towel because we were getting lots and lots of showings, but no offers. Then things turned around and offers started coming (too low of course) until one Realtor called – had a client coming from Nevada to look at the house, and she bought it that day (the Realtor is her daughter). They paid cash and closed almost immediately putting up in a real bind because we didn’t have a place to move to at the time. We ended up renting back our home — NOT A GOOD FEELING – until we found our farm.
Hang in there Girlie …. your time will come …. don’t give up or throw the towel in …. your Buyer will come when you least expect it.

Happy Day To You ~ Bobbie

These look really good and I can actually spell all the ingredients! 😉 It would be a lot of fun to actually find a small fish cookie cutter and make these with my grandchildren. And, since the temperature is fairly moderate at only 350 degrees, I would bet they will bake up nicely in my Sun Oven! Thanks so much for the recipe!

What fun it would be to find a little fish cookie cutter! I’l have to keep my eyes open for one!

Yum! My daughters and I will definitely be trying these. Maybe we’ll use our mini leaf cookie cutters! Thanks, Nancy. (Nice to have “met” you via the Simple Homestead Blog Hop.)

Thanks for stopping by, my husband wanted me to use our little dog biscuit cookie cutter but I like your idea of using a mini leaf cookie cutter, perfect for fall!

Colleen on September 2, 2016 3:19 am

These look like the perfect companion to a hot bowl of soup! Yum!

Nancy Wolff on September 2, 2016 2:21 pm

Great idea, they would be perfect with soup, we usually eat them all before the next day’s lunch!

Michelle on September 2, 2016 5:16 am

I have a whole collection of fall mini cookie cutters????
These will be great for after school snacks and for late night wine!

Nancy Wolff on September 2, 2016 2:20 pm

You are the second person to mention mini fall cookie cutters! Great idea!

I love the little hearts! 🙂 They are ALMOST too cute to eat! 🙂 Seems like a simple enough recipe and I can’t wait to try it for my one and three year old boys! Thanks for sharing!
