1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 2. 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. 3. 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. 4. 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.
