cheese star crackers

Categories: Appetizers, Breads, Pizza, Tarts, Posted by Sandy Bergsten


1 ½ cups flour

1 tsp kosher salt

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

¼ tsp paprika

8 ounces grated sharp orange cheese, room temperature

½ cup butter, room temperature



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a food processor pulse all the dry ingredients together until just combined.

Add the cheese and butter and process until the dough becomes smooth and has the texture of play-doh, this will take a couple minutes. Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for at least 20 minutes.

Place the dough in the cylinder of a cookie press fitted with a star disk. Press stars evenly spaced on a heavy baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 12 minutes or until the edges just begin to brown.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature.


Makes about 100 crackers
