I had some cheese leftover from all the mac and cheese recipes I was checking out. I thought it’d be fun to try making my own cheddar crackers.

I saw several recipes that looked really easy to make. And they were. Especially if you have a food processor because you just throw everything in and you end up with cheddar cracker dough in minutes.

I wasn’t really sure what sort of shapes I wanted to make. And then I remembered these Hello Kitty vegetable cutters I recently got. They were the perfect size.

I bought the cutters from Jbox. There’s something thrilling about homemade crackers. It’s not hard to make but it felt really good being able to make my own.

And unlike the ones you buy, you can have whatever shape you want. I thought these Hello Kitty ones were so adorable. Even cuter than baby goldfish.

The crackers taste a bit like cheeze-its. They are very cheesy, puffy, and crispy. They would be perfect for a party or for a snack. I would definitely make them again. You can view the recipe here.photo of two cheddar crackers

Homemade Hello Kitty Cheddar Crackers

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Course: Appetizer, Snack
Cuisine: American
Servings: 54 (3/8-oz) crackers
Homemade crackers are easy to make with a food processor. The crackers bake up very cheesy, puffy, and crispy and are a delicious snack or appetizer for a party.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter diced
  • 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp water

Directions:

  1. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.
  2. Place the flour, salt, paprika, and onion powder in a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine the ingredients together. Add the butter and process until it is incorporated. Add the cheese and pulse again until the cheese is finely chopped. Add the yolks and water and process until a dough ball forms.
  3. Transfer the dough to a work surface and knead it a few times. Divide the dough in half and roll out one half between two pieces of wax paper to a thickness of 3/8”, Peel off the wax paper and cut out crackers using a cookie cutter or stamp. Place the crackers on a baking sheet. Repeat this process with the other half of the dough. Transfer both baking sheets to the freezer for 15 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Bake the crackers for 20 minutes. Cool the crackers completely before serving or storing in an airtight container.
