Homemade Goldfish Crackers

Yesterday we had to be up early for soccer.  I set the alarm but then forgot the most important part - turning it on.  We woke up an hour late but Dad still sat down the check some of the blogs quick.  Does that make us addicted to the computer?  He quick looked at Swimtaxi234 (they have such a great blog that even Dad is a faithful reader) and they had this terrific cracker recipe posted.  When we were in town we pick up the few ingredients needed to make them.  Wow are they good!  They even give Cheez-Its a run for their money.  The initial thought was that we would bring them with to fellowship night at church but the kids gave that idea a quick veto and there wasn't enough left to bring by the time we left anyway.   

Homemade Goldfish Crackers

8 ounces, so a bag of Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
4 Tablespoons butter, cut into cubes
1 cup flour
¾ teaspoons salt
2 Tablespoons cold water

Pulse everything (except water) together in the food processor until the dough resembles coarse sand. Pulse in water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Remove dough from the processor, wrap in plastic, and chill for 20 minutes.

Roll out the dough and cut into shapes.  You can see we went all out and made squares, impressive aren't they.  Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until crispy.
To see a more detailed making of the crackers check out Swimtaxi234's post, oh, just go there anyway and check out their blog!
