Parmesan Cheddar Crackers

Posted by on January 4, 2012

The menu for New Year’s Eve included these crackers along with some homemade chocolate covered strawberries and prosecco. I brought the second batch last night to a New Year’s Day Party as well, and they disappeared quickly. I think these are going to be a good substitute for the gougeres I usually make. Because they don’t have a lot of butter, they aren’t flaky but more crunchy from all the cheese. Definitely addictive. A great start to the New Year!

Parmesan Cheddar Crackers

1 cup flour

1/3 cup spelt flour or whole wheat flour

3/4 cup grated cheddar

1/2 cup grated parmesan

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 pinch cayenne

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 eggs

Combine the flours, sugar, salt, and cayenne into a bowl. Add the butter and squeeze between your fingers until the butter pieces have broken down and the mixture is crumbly. Add the cheeses and stir to combine, making sure all the cheese is distributed. Add the olive oil and eggs and stir together. Divide into two halves and wrap in plastic wrap. Let them rest in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.

After resting, roll out each half between two pieces of parchment paper as thinly as possible. Cut with a pizza wheel and place the crackers on silpat-lined baking sheets. They will puff up a little while cooking, so you want to spread them out a little. Bake them at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until starting to brown on the edges. Let cool a few minutes before moving them so that they can crisp up as they cool.

    How delicious looking. I can probably eat about 20 of these at once. That’s not too much right?

    Well done!
