I did make a few changes however:
1 cup of whole wheat flour
8 oz of grated sharp cheddar cheese
4 tbs of salted butter cut into chunks
2 1/2 tbs of water
I didn't measure the salt, but sprinkled some into the mixture as I was kneading it and on top of the actual crackers
First I took the the the flour, cheese, and butter and threw it all into my vitamix. This was a rookie mistake. I assumed that I could swap an actual food processor for my vitamix, and well, you can't. I ended up over heating it (I actually added the extra water to try and prevent that) and ended up having to knead the dough by hand. Either way I was able to get it to a consistency I liked and stuck it in the fridge for 20 minutes while the oven heated up.
Then I realized I don't have a rolling pin.
What wife doesn't have a rolling pin? Don't they hand those out with your pearls and vacuum when you sign your marriage certificate? Either way, I had to result to using an old pickle jar we hard lying around.
I cut them into squares, cut a hole in the middle and put them in the oven on 350 for approximately 15 minutes. We don't actually have a kitchen timer, so I took them out of the oven when their edges looked golden brown.
And they are were delicious! (I was past tense, of course, because they're all gone.) I definitely want to make these again, but hopefully with the proper equipment. I'd also like to try swapping the butter (not that there's anything wrong with butter) with coconut oil sometime- just for kicks. All in all, I call this a successful snack!
