Total Time


2 cups (8 ounces) Land O Lakes® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 tablespoon ice water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all ingredients in food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Pulse until smooth and well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half. Shape each half into ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Roll out dough, one ball at a time, (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) on lightly floured surface to 9x7-inch rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Cut dough into 1-inch squares with fluted pastry cutter. Place squares, 1/2 inch apart, onto ungreased baking sheet.

  4. STEP 4

    Punch hole in center of each cracker, using standard drinking straw. Place baking sheet into refrigerator 10 minutes to chill dough.

  5. STEP 5

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  6. STEP 6

    Bake 12-15 minutes or until crackers are light golden brown around edges. Immediately loosen crackers from pan. Cool completely on pan.

Tip #1

This recipe is easy to mix into a smooth dough when using a food processor. If you do not have a food processor, use a hand mixer or mix dough by hand.

Tip #2

If you don’t have a fluted pastry cutter, crackers can be cut with pizza cutter or knife.
