Ingredients

  • 6 ounces extra sharp white cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 ounces parmesan grated
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cold water

Instructions

  • In your food processor {you could also use your stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment}; add in the grated cheeses, butter, flour and kosher salt until combined. Slowly drizzle in the cold water until it forms large crumbles. Form into a thin, flat disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for one hour or overnight.
  • Preheat your oven to 375°. Line a sheet pan with parchment or a silpat.
  • Cut the dough in half, place back in fridge and roll out the other half into a 1/8 inch. Use a ruler and a pastry or pasta cutter to cut 1 inch squares {cut in half on a diagonal for triangles}. If making the traditional Cheez-it cracker; use the tip of a chopstick or a wooden skewer to make the center dot. Place on a baking sheet, leaving little room between each one, they will puff up and not spread out.
  • Slide the pan into your preheated oven and bake for 15-17 minutes depending on how done you want them. Watch carefully, they can burn fairly easily. Once baked, sprinkle with a little kosher salt, don't overdo it.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack immediately.
