Cheeze it’s

A great tasting mini cheese cracker, made with cream instead of butter. These crackers brown more and the flavour is a deep nutty , grilled cheese taste. It works best with sharp yellow cheddar. I used a Mersey Valley classic cheddar cheese.

Dough ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups , 190 grams all purpose flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

  • 227 grams block cheddar cheese, preferably sharp and yellow, finely grated

  • 1 cup heavy cream

Egg Wash ingredients

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 1 Tbsp water

  • 1/4 tsp salt

Dough Directions

  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat to 180 C/ 350 F
    Whisk flour , baking powder, sugar and salt together in a medium bowl. Add cheddar with dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in cream, mixing until dough comes together. Transfer to a lightly floured surface , roll each portion into 15″ x 11 ” rectangle, no more than 1/8 ” thick. Transfer each to a parchment lined half sheet pan, then cut into 1 ” squares , either using a fluted pastry wheel or knife.

Egg Wash

  • Using a bamboo skewer or toothpick, press a small indentation into the center of each dough square.
    Whisk egg, yolk, water and salt together in a small bowl. Brush over prepared dough, then sprinkle with additional salt to taste.
  • Pre heat oven to 180 C. Bake until a light golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Cool to room temperature and enjoy immediately, or store up to 1 month in an airtight container at room temperature.
    Please watch the cooking on these crackers as they will brown very quickly.
