Homemade Cheddar Crackers


A homemade version of a Cheezit or or similar cracker. Made with whole wheat flour and sharp cheddar, these are awesome with a cold beer.


  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon season salt
  • 3 cups grated cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients in bowl of food processor. Keep machine on until the dough forms a ball, about 1 minute.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to about 1/8-inch thick. Using a round cookie cutter (I think mine was 1 1/2 inches round), cut out dough and transfer to an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake the crackers for 12 minutes or until lightly browned at edges.
  5. Remove crackers from oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  6. These crackers can be stored in an airtight container on the counter for a few days or wrapped and frozen up to one month.
