These are divine!
Super simple to make and have a lovely crispy texture and a cheesy/buttery taste.
Perfect to eat on their own or to pair with cheese or Vegemite etc.
I think these would be a win for most picky eaters and a great addition to the lunchbox.
Anything we make at home is generally better than store-bought as we’re skipping preservatives and additional unnecessary ingredients.
Road tested and approved by critical mini chefs!
½ cup tasty cheese – grated (a milder cheese would give less flavour – and that may be a good place to start, however, I think the cheesy flavour from the tasty is similar to artificially enhanced store-bought biscuits/crackers)
½ cup flour – I used whole-meal
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 cup butter – cubed
½ tsp salt (optional extra for sprinkling on top)
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tbs cold water
Put all the dry ingredients into the food processor and combine to make a breadcrumb consistency (or rub together manually)
Add the water and form a dough
Chill for 20 minutes
Roll out – I made mine about ½ cm thick (thinner will be crispier). I flattened between 2 silicon sheets using a rolling pin. Baking paper would also work.
Sprinkle with a little additional salt
Use a knife or cookie cutters to cut into shapes
Bake in 175˚ oven for 10 – 20 minutes until starting to brown (time will depend on the thickness) I took some out before others.
Cool on a rack.
