Tray of Crackers

Homemade Crackers

Made with 3 simple ingredients


  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter cut into individual tablespoons
  • 1 ½ cups grated sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix until a big ball of dough forms. Be patient - it can take a few minutes.
  3. Roll the ball into a log about 1 ½” in diameter. Refrigerate for 30 minutes for easier cutting.
  4. Slice the dough into ¼” slices and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8 - 14 minutes or until golden brown. The thinner the cracker the less time it will take.

Recipe Notes

Try to rotate which side you are cutting down on because the top of the log does start to flatten a little. It is like your very own homemade slice and bake!
Poking each cracker with a fork is not necessary – it was purely done to achieve that ‘cracker’ look.
