Cheesy Cracker Puffs


Video: Cheesy Cracker Puffs

Ingredients: 

3 cups freshly grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 Tablespoons half and half
1 3/4 cups flour

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2.  Pour grated cheese, butter, salt and half and half into the bowl of a stand mixer.
  3. Mix until combined.
  4.  Add flour. Mix until just combined. Dough will be very crumbly.
  5. Using your hands, take half of the dough and form it into a disc.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, carefully roll dough out to about a 1/4 inch thickness. Dough will crack so try to keep it as intact as possible as you roll it out. (I like to use my hands to flatten it out)
  7.  Using a small cookie cutter, cut out crackers OR use a butter knife to cut out 1×1 inch squares.
  8. Place crackers on a jelly roll pan. Crackers can be close to each other but not touching.
  9. Bake 14-16 minutes. Transfer crackers immediately to a cooling rack.
  10. Repeat with remaining dough.
  11. Once cooled, store crackers in an airtight container.
