Gluten Free Cheese Crackers

So, lately I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest. During the day I have been spending a lot of time on the phone and emails in preparation for the Gluten Free Expo, that at night, I just want to surf.  🙂  If you haven't started Pinterest, not sure whether to encourage you to or not.  It is so addicting!  These cheese crackers are some that I found on Pinterest.  The recipe is not gluten free.  So I changed the flour and voila!  Gluten Free Cheese Crackers!


1 1/2 cups grated extra sharp cheddar cheese

4 T. unsalted butter, softened and cut into pieces

3/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour mix (I used the same flour mix that I used for the gluten free croissants)

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

1T. milk (I added a little more, but start with this and add more if needed 1 T. at a time).


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Put everything except milk  in the food processor and pulse 5-10 seconds at a time until it becomes coarse crumbs

Add the milk and continue to process until the dough clumjps in a ball

Roll the dough out on lightly floured suface.  Try to roll into a rectangle shape (makes it easier to cut)

Cut into 1 inch squares.  I used a pizza cutter.  Then put a small hole in the center of the square with the dull end of a skewer

Place the crackers 1/4 inch apart on parchment paper on a cookie sheet

Bake for 12-15 min. until a little crispy around the edges

Let them cool and then eat them!  We had some left for the next day and they were not as crispy then, so I wouldn't recommend making to keep for a week or 2.  Just make what you would like to eat.  They really do taste like Cheez-Its!  My daughter said, "Is this really what Cheez-Its taste like?"  It has been so long since she has had one. 

**note, these were a tad spicy with the crushed red pepper flakes.  If you wanted to use a little less, or just some red pepper instead, it may not be as spicy.

If you try them, let me know what you think!
