Goldfish Crackers

I bet you never thought you could make these yummy little crackers.  Not only are they easy but I bet you have all the ingredients already at home.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (cut into small cubes)
  • 8 ounces grated cheese (I used sharp, but you can use medium or mild)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons of water

In a food processor, pulse your flour, salt and pepper, add your cubed butter and pulse until the mixture looks like coarse meal.   Start adding your grated cheese a little at a time until it looks like coarse meal again.

Start adding your water 1 tablespoon at a time while pulsing, until the dough forms into a ball.

I then wrapped the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate.  1 hour or 2 is probably fine but I left mine in over night.

Roll small portions of the dough at a time in between two pieces of wax paper, keeping the extra refrigerated.   Roll to about 1/8 inch thick.  If your dough is too thick your fish won’t be as crispy.  If it’s too thin, they won’t puff up as much.  I made my own fish cutter using a tin can.  You can also just cut in squares using a pastry cutter and they will look more like cheez-it crackers.  I have some mini christmas cookie cutters, so for the holidays I’ll have christmas shaped crackers.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 to 15 minutes.  Depending on your oven, start checking them after about 10 minutes.  While still warm after taking them out I sprinkled a little salt over them. Let cool and store in a sealed container.  Enjoy!
