Making crackers

A while back I had mentioned making crackers and others had been curious about a recipe. I recently made one of my favorite cracker recipes and I took pictures so I could share that and the recipe with you. This is not a soda cracker but rather a snack cracker. I like to dip it in Salsa to eat it.

Cheese Crackers
combine:
1 cup shredded cheese (or actually I like to use our homemade cheese
which I usually make from goat's milk)
1/2 teaspoon salt and a dash of pepper
1 1/4 cup flour (I use part whole wheat)
Then cut in with a pastry blender:
1/3 cup butter
Sprinkle with:
3 tablespoons milk
Toss with fork and then form into a ball.
Roll out to 1/8 inch thick. Sprinkle liberally with sesame seeds and roll again. Prick with a fork and the cut into crackers size pieces. Place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden.
I hope your family enjoys these crackers too.

Thanks Abbi for posting your recipe. The crackers were yummy and I have been wanting to make some. Another way to use our good milk. Is it the same recipe as the one from the More for Less Cookbook? mom

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I just tried it with some success. I didn't roll them out quite thin enough but they had a good flavor even though not quite as crackery as they probably should be. I will try this recipe again. One question, what temp do you cook them? I guessed and cooked them at 425. Thanks!

The recipe says 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Sorry I forgot to put that in there!
