Cheese Crackers

I have never made crackers before. I don't know why. My husband loves crackers with dip. I think it is his favorite lunch. Since Father's Day is this Sunday, I wanted to make him something thoughtful for being a good Dad. When he arrived home from work, he was surprised with what I made for him. Even never thought to ask me to make crackers. He thought they were great. I will say crackers are really simple to make. They are a great treat even to add to a lunch box especially since my son loved them. 
Cheese Crackers with a kick
6 oz. Monterey Jack with Jalapeno Cheese
4 Tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp milk

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the cheese, butter, flour, and salt for about 20 seconds.
  3. Add the milk and combine for 10 seconds.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/8 thickness and cut into desired shapes.
  5. On a parchment lined baking sheet, bake the crackers for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.
