Cheez-it Crackers


These crackers are super fun to make. Something I love about this recipe is that it teaches kids a little bit of patients. You have to do a little work, then wait, do a little more work, then wait some more.

We are all about instant gratification and these will help us all learn that things take time. Not too much time though.


1 ½ cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated

4 Tbsp cold butter, cut up¾ cups flour

⅛ tsp kosher salt (plus more for top)

½ tsp. Paprika

1 Tbsp. ice cold water

1-Wash your hands and clean your work area.

2-Add all your ingredients, except the water, into a medium size bowl.

3-Mix with a fork, a pastry blender, or your hands until all the butter has been mixed in.

4-Add the water if it isn’t coming together. Add more if needed. You want it to form a ball of dough but not be too doughy.

5-Form a disk and wrap it in plastic.

6-Place it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

7-Place the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll it out until it’s about ⅛ of an inch thick. The thinner the better.

8-Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 1 inch squares. Use a toothpick and stick each square in the middle.

9-Sprinkle some kosher salt on top if you want.

10-Spread the crachers out on a parchment sheet and put them in the fridge for another 10 minutes.

11-Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake them for 14-15 minutes.

12-Clean up mess.

13-Eat, Share, Enjoy!!!
