Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons butter cut into chunks
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • Flatten the balls into disks between sheets of plastic wrap. Wrap them up, and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes (or up to 3 days).
  • Roll dough to ¼-inch thickness. (If it’s too hard to roll, let it soften on the counter for a few minutes.)
  • Cut dough into 1-inch squares with a knife or a pastry or pizza cutter (or cut into shapes with a small cookie cutter).
  • Place crackers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Wiggle a toothpick in the center of each square to make a hole. Bake for 8–12 minutes, or until crispy. Cool on the pan for a few minutes before serving.
