Hey guys, I hope you all are having an awesome Thursday! I found this recipe yesterday and it was so fun and yummy, I wanted to share it! I am the biggest fan of Goldfish cheese crackers, so when I saw a recipe for homemade Goldfish on Pinterest of course I saved it! Yesterday I finally came around to trying it out and it was a great success. I followed the basic mutual guidelines of all the recipes I found, and tweaked it where I needed to. While these crackers don’t really taste like Goldfish (they taste more like cheez-its to me), they’re still yummy! The kids will love these and love to help make these too (you can see I had little helping hands ;)) Plus, it’s always a good feeling knowing exactly what is in the food little one’s are eating. I read online that these crackers won’t last long if stored, some even said they wouldn’t go longer than overnight without losing their crunch, but I kept mine in a bowl since I baked them yesterday and I just finished them off before writing this post– they were perfectly crunchy to me! However, I’m sure they wouldn’t last as long as store bought crackers. I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know if you try it out!!
- 1 cup flour
- 8 oz sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/4-1/2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp cold water
- Preheat oven to 340 degrees F.
- Pulse butter and flour together in a food processor until it forms coarse crumbs.
- Add salt to mixture and cheddar cheese to mixture and pulse.
- Add water, 1 Tbsp at a time.
- Use hands to form dough and divide dough into 2 sections. Wrap each section in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 min.
- Take one portion of dough out of the fridge (work with one portion at a time) and place in-between two sheets of plastic wrap or wax paper. Roll out to 1/8 in thickness. Cut out shapes of your choice and place on a prepared baking tray.
- Repeat last step until all dough is used.
- Bake for aprox. 15 min, or until dough is crispy and golden on the edges.
I linked some fun mini letter-shape cookie cutters below. How cute would those be for this recipe?!
