Cheddar Cheese CrackersCuisinart Original Recipe
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed and at room temperature
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper pinch cayenne
1½ cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and the cheese. Using a Cuisinart® Hand or Stand Mixer fitted with the mixing beaters/paddle, mix until fully combined. Add the remaining ingredients and mix on low until combined. Fit the Cuisinart® Electric Cookie Press with desired disc*. Load the cracker dough to the MAX fill line. Press dough out onto an ungreased/unlined baking pan, about 2 inches apart..
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly golden around the edges. Cool crackers before removing from pan.
*Note: Due to the shredded cheese in this dough, we recommend using discs 3, 5, 6, 10 or 12.
