parmesan cheese crackers
Well, I’d say an hour later after “searching” high and low for just the right recipe, tada!!! I found a cracker that would suffice. Anything with cheese sounds great! And I’m not sad to say….this was our dinner tonight.
Ok, ok….I spiffed them up a bit with some prosciutto and a sliver of parmesan…yummy! If this won’t satisfy your tummy at dinner time, keep them in mind for a midday pick-me-up or party snack. Everyone is sure to love them!
To make these quick and easy crackers yourself-
You Will Need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup half and half or cream
4 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
If you want to jazz it up a bit, sprinkle some sesame seeds, pepper, sea salt, rosemary, or minced garlic on top of crackers before baking. I used a bit of dried rosemary, salt and pepper and they are just divine.
In effort to support cooking with organic ingredients, switch if not all, just one of the ingredients to organic. Get the grocers to give us organics at a lower cost. Every bit helps!
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together flour, butter, cheese, and salt until butter is throughly combined. Then add cream/half and half until it pulls together and is no longer sticky. You may need to add a bit more cream to get the dough to make a ball. Once you have a dough ball, put on lightly flours surface and roll out until it’s no longer thicker than 1/2 in. ( they do puff up a bit.) You then can roll back over rolling pin to transfer onto lightly floured or parchment paper lined baking sheet. At this time you may sprinkle with any topping you would like. Cut crackers into rectangles with a pizza slicer. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Eat and Enjoy!
