(Credit for this recipe goes to More With Less, as does credit for many of my recipes. It’s just GOOD STUFF. If you don’t have the cookbook, get it!!! It will quietly revolutionize your eating, working positive changes in your budget and your body.)
1 C. grated sharp cheese (I used what I had: a mix of mexi-cheese and mozzarella)
1/2 tsp salt and a dash of pepper
1 1/4 C. flour
1/3 C. margarine (I’m sure butter is fine)
3 TBS milk
sesame seeds (or topping of your choice)
Preheat the oven to 375. Combine the cheese, salt, pepper, and flour. Cut in the margarine with a pastry blender. Sprinkle the dough with the milk. Toss with a fork and form it into a ball.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and roll it 1/8″ thick. Sprinkle liberally with sesame seeds. Run the rolling pin over it again. Prick the dough with a fork all over. Cut into 1/2″ sticks, 2″ squares and then triangles, etc.
If there are some oddly shaped edges, you may have to suffer through and eat them now.
Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes, or until golden.
Note: The process I just described will become second nature if you start making your own crackers. Make a dough, roll it out. Top it, roll it. Prick it, cut it. Bake and eat. Oh yeah – cool them, if you have the self control.
